A successful application by South West Healthcare in conjunction with Deakin University’s Western Victoria Regional Training Hub will see better care for women of the south west.

South West Healthcare’s Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Dr. Rosy Buchanan said using the experience of surgeons and physicians before us, we were able to complete a successful application for a rural integrated training program through Royal Australia and New Zealand College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

“Deakin’s Regional Training Hub provided administration assistance for the application to ensure the inclusion of this additional stream to the regional and rural training programs already on offer.

“While we potentially won’t see applicants from the Warrnambool campus’ new Doctor of Medicine’s Rural Training Stream for a few years, we are hopeful current medical students who complete their final two years here apply to specialise through end-to-end rural training and stay regional,” Dr Buchanan said.

Published research shows the optimal way to build a rural and regional medical workforce is for future clinicians to transition from secondary schooling through to university and vocational training all within a rural and regional area.
