Queensland Health Rural Scholarship Scheme

This article is a brief description that will need to be redeveloped and expanded at a later date.

The Queensland Health Rural Scholarship Scheme provides financial assistance to students studying medicine during what is called the 'study period'. This appears to include a living allowance of $544.27 per fortnight and a tertiary grant of $5800 per year given in equal halves at the beginning and mid-way through each academic year.

In return students must complete their studies in the minimum amount of time required by their university and diligently attend to all course requirements. They must complete a rural experience week once a year (travel expenses paid = $500). Once they graduate students are contracted to Queensland health for the length of their study period (this is called the service period) and are required to work in rural or regional locations at the discretion of Queensland health. It seems they may have some say in the location but ultimately the decision will not be theirs. It seems the service period starts on a date nominated by Queensland health but that is (apparently) as soon as practical after the student gains registration (i.e. in the post-graduate 1, 2 and 3 years).
