This program is designed to increase the number of doctors working in rural NSW communities. The cadetship provides financial assistance and other supports to Indigenous medical students who work as interns and residents in rural NSW hospitals after graduation. Cadetships are funded by the NSW Ministry of Health and are administered by the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN).
Successful applicants will receive a scholarship valued at $30,000 during their degree. Cadets commit to spending two of their first three post graduate years in an eligible NSW rural hospital. Cadets are ambassadors for the program and help to mentor younger medical students in the cadet network.
