The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School

The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School (UQRCS) envisages securing a self-sustaining medical workforce for regional Queensland through excellence in medical education, research and community service.  With a footprint encompassing the greater part of central and western regional Queensland, the Rural Clinical School comprises four clinical sites – Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Toowoomba. Significant investment in people and training infrastructure at each site provides the operational focus for a network of smaller clinical training locations in host communities across the state.  With a recurrent budget of up to $9 million per annum provided through the Australian Government’s Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training (RHMT) program and a capital works portfolio in excess of $20 million, UQRCS is a substantial enterprise.
