Please join us! The medical students of the BHUDRH from across NSW & SA (Wollongong, Sydney and Adelaide) are coming together to host student grand roundsan educational experience centered around case-based learning right here in Broken Hill.

Student Grand Rounds (SGR), is a peer-led education initiative that aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required for clinical practice. The SGR curriculum consists of peer-led sessions (45 minutes – 60 minutes) that aim to improve existing knowledge/skills, increase clinical exposure and build confidence. SGR facilitators will be expected to:

  •  Prepare and present a case from clinical practice during their time in Broken Hill.
  •  Focus on / develop particular teaching points which are embedded in your case.

The BHUDRH coordinates and supports medical student placements from over 14 national and international universities.  Medical students are primarily placed at Broken Hill Health Service, and provided with clinical supervision and support.  Placements range from two to 38 weeks duration.     

In addition to the long-stay students, BHUDRH offers short-term medical placements in a variety of clinical settings. There are opportunities to experience rural healthcare in the Emergency Department, General and Elderly Medicine, Surgery, O&G and Paediatrics. The BHUDRH also facilitates placements of up to four weeks in remote sites such as Menindee, Wilcannia and Bourke.

Whether you are interested in an elective block during your Australian Medical degree, or have been successful in the John Flynn Scholarship program, and would like to enquire about availability, please contact our placement team.

Medical students from overseas will also be considered, subject to capacity restrictions.

We believe that even a short spell of training spent in a rural health setting will open your mind to the challenges of delivering high quality rural healthcare and highlight the advantages of a rural generalist career pathway.
