Time to end the drought in the bush

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: This paper outlines the current psychiatry workforce shortages experienced by rural and remote communities in Australia and argues that postgraduate training in psychiatry may play a role in rectifying these healthcare access inequities.
Conclusion: Funding for postgraduate medical specialist training in Australia is undergoing a shift away from solely metropolitan-centric training schemes, based on substantial evidence over the past two decades in undergraduate medical training. Psychiatry is well placed to lead the development of dedicated postgraduate rural training path- ways to enhance recruitment and retention of an urgently required rural and remote psychiatry workforce.
