The John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) is seeking mentors for our 2020 Victorian student cohort.

Unlike a university organised placement, mentors are not expected to teach or supervise particular clinical skills. The mentor’s role is to show the life and work of a rural medical practitioner. Mentors can earn RACGP QI&CPD points and ACRRM PDP points, and in addition are paid an honorarium.

Mentors must be qualified health practitioners. This includes PGY2 Residents (RMO, SRMO, JHO, SHO, PHO, HMO or TMO) and Registrars. Rural Practices can take on a scholar as a collective, where the scholar can work alongside multiple practitioners, or if they prefer the scholar can be placed with a singular health practitioner.

The program is dedicated to inspiring emerging GPs to continue to practice in Rural Victoria.

If you would like to participate please register online.
