Welcome to the official GPSN Rural Working Group blog!
The Rural Working Group are a dedicated committee of students who want to celebrate and share the wonders, challenges and diversity of the rural GP lifestyle with the wider medical community
Being a rural GP is not only fascinating in the variety of cases that come through the door, but also a rewarding challenge that requires top clinical skills and judgement with the limitations of certain resources
We have created this blog as an open space for medical students to share their personal experiences on their rural GP placements/ rotations to shed light on what it encompasses with the hope of encouraging more medical students and professionals to seek out the rewarding pathway towards becoming a rural GP.
