Department of Rural Health
The University of Newcastle Department of Rural Health (UONDRH) focuses on:
- facilitating student placements and learning
- enhancing the health of local communities through community engagement and
- conducting research into rural health issues.
The UONDRH is Commonwealth funded under the Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training (RHMT) Programme.
Our program has staff and facilities located in Tamworth, Taree, Armidale, Moree, Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour - giving students the opportunity to enjoy a unique lifestyle while you complete your placement.
We seek not only to provide health education and services to our local community, but also support disadvantaged communities and to provide our students with first hand exposure to community issues.
Our investment in research is reflected in our strategy, focusing on rural workforce, education, Indigenous health and clinical evidence.
