Junior Doctor Training Program
The JDTP supports education and supervision for junior doctors in rural primary health care settings and private hospitals. This helps provide a continued supply of doctors to deliver health services across Australia. It is part of our Stronger Rural Health Strategy.
Stronger Rural Health Strategy
The Stronger Rural Health Strategy (SRHS) is a 10-year strategy from 2018-19 to improve the health of people in Australia through the supply of a quality health workforce that is distributed across the country according to community need. It will deliver 3,000 extra doctors and 3,000 extra nurses by 2028.
