The aim of the outplacement at KDH is:

  • To boost the rural context during JCCA training at large metropolitan and regional hospitals in Victoria
  • To allow trainees a chance to work directly with experienced rural GPAs. The current metropolitan FANZCA-only focus provides excellent training in the discipline of anaesthesia, but lacks many of the rural-specific nuances

To produce practice-ready Victorian JCCA graduates more familiar with the responsibilities that await them as independent and safe rural GPAs

  • JCCA approved outplacement for 6 weeks at Kilmore District Health (KDH). Accommodation provided by KDH for outpatient rotation.
