Rural Relieving Seminar 2020


When: Tuesday 20 October 2020, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Where: Online

The Rural Relieving rotation is often a source of anxiety and dread. The thought of caring for an unwell patient at 3am without immediate access to the resources and support we have become accustomed to as doctors in larger regional and metropolitan hospitals can make your heart sink… let alone the fact that you’re in a town without your mates or even a 24 hour McDonald’s for the midnight coffee round!

Despite the lack of some luxuries, your rural rotation could very well provide you with the best experiences of your residency. The opportunity for hands-on learning, greater clinical autonomy and to work alongside some of Australia’s best practitioners is invaluable. Join our expert panel for tips and tricks on how to best prepare yourself and how to navigate any bumps in the road, whether you wished for the life off-the-beaten-track or not…
