RDN offers subsidies to doctors who are registered as locums with RDN and complete eligible advertised roles.
RDN CPD Vouchers
A CPD voucher to attend an RDN rural GP conference is available for doctors who fill an RDN locum vacancy in an RA4 location or Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS). The voucher is valid for both the doctor and their partner.
RA4 Locum Attraction Subsidy
A subsidy of $1,000 is available for doctors who fill an RDN locum vacancy of five days or more in an RA4 location.
