NRHSN Executive Committee

NHRSN’s goal is to provide a voice to students looking to improve rural remote community health outcomes.

The NRHSN and its Rural Health Clubs offer rural experience weekends, career information sessions and professional development activities as well as providing a social base for students at university and when on rural placement.

The student network leaders also advocate on behalf of health students of all disciplines – including opportunities for more rural placements and training support.

The NRHSN is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health administered as a consortium by the Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs).
