SQRH has been established to increase rural health training opportunities for nursing, midwifery and allied health students and health professionals in regional, rural and remote communities.
We are developing the health workforce where it is needed most.
SQRH supports rural health professionals and students to engage in high quality rural health research.

“I am really loving the rural experience and also the prevention measures of the wellness model,” Tara said.
Tara, who took up her placement in September, said she would definitely recommend choosing a rural placement to other students.
“You are seeing a different aspect to healthcare and the emphasis on Interprofessional Education means we see each discipline helping each other and provide input for care needed.
“The Health and Wellness Clinic is a fantastic environment – the participants are really lovely and enjoy working with us. I think they realise we want to help them live healthier lives, we’re keen to listen and also encourage them in their wellness journey,” she said.
Tara said working with physiotherapy, exercise physiology, dietetics, psychology and social work students, as well as the SQRH Clinical Education team, meant she could see positive outcomes for clinic participants and better prepare herself for future work environments.
