The NSW Rural Resident Medical Officer Cadetship is a program that is designed to increase the number of doctors working in rural communities. The Cadetship provides financial and other supports to medical students who then work as interns and residents in rural NSW hospitals after graduation. Cadetships are funded by The NSW Ministry of Health and administered by NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN).
Cadets commit to spending two of their first three post graduate years in a rural base hospital west of the Great Dividing Range in NSW i.e. Tamworth, Orange, Dubbo, Wagga Wagga or Albury. (Cadets can choose to defer their rural service in their intern year and begin the return of service in PGY2). Cadets are ambassadors for the program and help monitor younger medical students in the cadet network.
