MDRAP Support Packages available for practices and participants

17 Jun 2021

More Doctors for Rural Australia Program (MDRAP) supervisors and participants may be eligible for payments to offset the cost of supervision and education. Supervision support payments up to $30,000 and learning and development funds up to $13,600 per annum are available per MDRAP participant. All payments are calculated based on the needs of the participant and the level of support required by the supervisor. The payments are administered by the Rural Workforce Agencies. 

MDRAP supports non-vocationally recognised doctors to gain general practice experience in rural and remote communities prior to joining a college fellowship pathway. The MDRAP also supports junior doctors and locums providing services in rural and remote communities.  

The Department recently finalised the MDRAP Program Guidelines, which are available here.
