Welcome

Charles Sturt University and Western Sydney University are proud to partner to deliver a Joint Medical Program (JMP) that will serve our communities and deliver upon workforce needs across our regions.

By working in partnership with our many and varied communities, we are pleased to acknowledge that the establishment of a JMP will contribute to the ongoing development, wellbeing and prosperity of the communities and regions we serve across New South Wales.

Commencing in 2021, this new collaborative program will enable both universities to develop and deliver a model that will allow for the expansion of medical training in rural locations. Most importantly it will allow students in rural and regional Australia to train in the bush and develop the skills, knowledge and networks that will allow them to take up rural medical practice.

Faculty of Science

Charles Sturt University delivers flexible, innovative teaching programs which provide graduates with the skills and knowledge to build a career, advance their profession and contribute to their community.

Hon Bridget McKenzie

People living in rural and regional Australia make an enormous contribution to our nation that often goes unrecognised or acknowledged, to our economy, to our cultural identity and our national character. They deserve the same access to high-quality healthcare services as those living in capital cities.
