Eastern Victoria GP Training (EV) has partnered with Latrobe Regional Hospital and several rural general practices to provide rural primary care rotations for junior doctors in Gippsland since 2018.

The Rural Junior Doctor Training Innovation Fund (RJDTIF) is a Commonwealth Department of Health initiative. EV is the only Regional Training Provider to participate in this National scheme.

This is a valuable program for doctors wanting to experience general practice and develop their skills for a future rural medical career. The doctors are well supported to extend their learning and immerse themselves in their local community.
