Health workforce programs
John Flynn Placement Program
The John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) introduces medical students to life as a rural doctor by offering them the opportunity to spend eight weeks over four years in one small rural or remote community. Students work closely with rural health professionals and are linked to a local person or organisation in the community to assist with social and cultural experiences.
The JFPP is designed to attract more young doctors to rural practice and in improve the quality of health care in regional, rural and remote areas.
