Rural Generalist Pathway Scholarships 2022

The Rural Generalist Pathway Scholarship (RGPS) is now taking applications for 5th year UTAS medical students looking to start their career as a rural generalist or rural general practitioner.

The scholarship offers medical students up to $15,000 over a three year period and provides an opportunity to attend accredited and non-accredited:

  • workshops
  • conferences
  • short courses

Eligible applicants who have accepted their intern offer at the Launceston General Hospital or North West Regional Hospital will receive a $3,000 cash payment to support their transition into the hospital system. They will also receive free attendance and accommodation to the Tasmanian Rural Health Conference 2022 in Launceston. During their internship year (PGY1) and RMO year (PGY2) they will have $5,000 available per year to support their attendance to conferences and clinical training workshops.

Preference will be given to graduates from the Rural Clinical School and the Launceston Clinical School who will complete their intern and RMO year at either the Northwest Regional Hospital or Launceston General Hospital.

Scholarship applications close on Thursday 9 June 2022. Successful applicants will be notified of the outcome by early August 2022. The first payment will be paid towards the end of October 2022, once the applicant has accepted their intern payment.

Scholarship funding is subject to the RGPS 2022 eligibility guidelines.
