Victorian UDRH Collaboration: Regional/Rural Placement Webinar 2021

On Tuesday 27th April 2021, the four University Departments of Rural Health (UDRHs) in Victoria collaborated to present a Regional/Rural Placement Webinar, to provide information to students from any university about regional and rural placements in Victoria. 

Over 300 people registered for the event, which was a huge success. The webinar also included a student and new graduate panel, representing multiple health professions, who discussed their regional/rural placement experiences, and in the case of the new graduates, why they decided to work rurally.

Thanks to all in the planning team, all panel members for giving us their time, and all participants for their questions and interest in the webinar. Hopefully this can be a regular event!

A recording of the webinar can be accessed below.
