Rural Generalist Pathway WA
As part of the National Rural Generalist Pathway, the WA Country Health Service (WACHS) hosts the Rural Generalist Pathway WA (RGPWA) Coordination Unit to support the expansion of a dedicated training pathway for aspiring rural generalists in WA. The aim of the RGPWA is to facilitate the transition for rural generalist trainees through the various educational and training components, as well as provide post-fellowship support to rural generalists.
The RGPWA is flexible and can be joined at various points throughout a current or aspiring rural generalist’s training journey. If you are interested in training to be a rural generalist or are currently enrolled in training, you may be eligible to apply to join the pathway. The pathway offers an open intake with applications accepted throughout the year.
To find out more about the pathway, including the eligibility criteria and the application process, visit the RGPWA website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
