Rural Emergency Skills Training
The Rural Emergency Skills Training (REST) course:
- enables rural GPs to enhance their emergency medicine skills
- trains urban GPs for rural locum work by broadening their clinical skills and offering essential emergency medicine skills training.
REST courses are run regularly in NSW by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM). The two-day training and assessment program is held during a weekend and includes lectures, demonstrations and practical components.
Funding is available to eligible rural GPs to attend the course through the Health Workforce Scholarship Program.
