Rural Doctors Upskilling Program (RDUP)

Queensland requires an appropriately skilled and distributed medical practitioner workforce to meet the primary health care needs of our community, particularly with respect to the delivery of public and community health programs and procedural work in regional, rural and remote hospitals.

The Rural Doctors Upskilling Program provides funding to facilitate greater access to training within the Queensland public sector for General Practitioners and Rural Generalists to upskill in a special interest or maintain their advanced or specialised skillsets in order to serve the regional, rural and remote communities in which they practice.

The application period for RDUP will open in June 2019, further information will be added to this page closer to this date.
