Rural Scholars Summer School

The Rural Scholars Summer School is a five-day long residential camp open to anyone 15 years and over who is interested in pursuing a career in medicine, and lives in a rural, regional or remote area. Regardless of whether you are a high-school student, school leaver or someone interested in redirecting their career - if you are passionate about making a difference in rural, regional and remote areas, we want to help you succeed.

The very first step of accessing a medical education is often the most difficult, and we would like to demystify the study and practice of medicine in a rural context.


Summer School Dates

Monday, December 3rd to Friday, December 7th, 2018



The school is fully subsidised for successful applicants and for an accompanying parent/guardian for participants under 18 years old. Costs covered include accommodation on campus, meals and transport.
