Surviving Rural Relieving
Strategies for success on your rural relieving rotation

The rural relieving term fills many Doctors in Training with trepidation. Dealing with challenging clinical situations (often without immediate access to the resources and support of a large city Hospital environment) and being away from family and friends are legitimate concerns. However a rural placement provides amazing opportunities for hands-on learning, often greater attention from supervisors and a higher level of autonomy – along with the chance to immerse yourself in a vibrant new country community.

Join our expert panel for tips to navigate typical clinical situations experienced in rural communities and how to make the most of the experience both professionally and personally.

Available via live webinar for regional Doctors in Training and Medical Students.

Free for AMA Members.
