Outreach programs provide urban and regionally based health practitioners with the rewarding opportunity to experience working in a rural or Aboriginal community (and in some cases this has resulted in health practitioners relocating permanently to rural locations). The program also supports students and registrars to participate in health Outreach clinics and gain exposure to rural and Aboriginal health.
Download the current RDN Outreach vacancies list (Excel 15kb or PDF 63 KB) for services funded by the Australian Government Department of Health (DoH) and administered by RDN across NSW and the ACT. RDN frequently updates the list of Outreach vacancies to maintain its currency; however, this vacancy information is ultimately provided by local organisations that operate individual services and is likely to change as services develop. This list does not include any Outreach vacancies that are not funded by Outreach programs administered by RDN.
If you are a health professional registered to practise in Australia or otherwise formally recognised and are interested in providing health Outreach services, please register your details on our Expression of Interest form. Alternatively, email RDN or call 02 8337 8100. RDN will contact you once you have expressed an interest in Outreach to discuss current vacancies.
RDN works closely with the local health organisations responsible for the local management and administration of services and any appointment decisions will be made by the local health organisation.
Urgent: psychiatry service vacancy in Griffith
RDN is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from general psychiatrists interested in providing an established fortnightly Outreach psychiatry service to Griffith, NSW. Ideally, the clinic will continue to be hosted at Kookora Surgery, however this may be negotiated.
The service would be supported financially through the Rural Health Outreach Fund (RHOF). Program funds are available to cover the cost of transportation, meals, accommodation and travel time.
- Getting to Griffith: Rex flies from Sydney to Griffith daily, however in some instances an overnight stay may be required/preferable.
- Current psychiatry services in Griffith: The visiting psychiatrist providing fortnightly outreach clinics at Kookora Surgery has ceased operations and no other services are accessible locally.
