High School Students



Rural Medical Education Australia (RMEA) (Rural Med Ed) achieves with a faculty of highly valued, skilled rural clinical academics and researchers leading the following programs:

We have a team of qualified, experienced clinical academic educators to deliver the Griffith University 3rd and 4th year rural medical student program, general practice exam preparation programs and VET training. 

Rural Med Ed has partnered with Griffith University to deliver the University’s rural clinical program, funded by the Commonwealth Government Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training program. As Rural Med Ed is locally based, locally led and locally governed, it ensures a focused rural stream for the Griffith University School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Our research program is supported by clinical research academics living and working in rural Queensland.

We have been successful in funding from Destination Australia with 10 scholarships for Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance.

Our Considering Medicine and Aspire2Health high school programs aim to increase the number of rural and indigenous students graduating from health courses.
