“This program provides excellent support and encouragement for maintaining/enhancing abilities and skills for rural specialists. Some components of the course (cadaveric workshop/veterinary laboratory) would never be available in my regional place of practice and significantly enhanced my learning at the workshop.”ANZCA Fellow
“Lots of hands on and mentored case reading means I feel more confident to tackle live cases on a daily basis on return to the practice. This has been a very easy and gratifying process and I am very grateful for the opportunity this funding process has afforded me.”RANZCR Fellow
“Peer review and interactive learning, the ability to ask questions and watch is a powerful learning tool. It is not commonly appreciated for those in the large hospitals where contacts is present daily.”RANZCO Fellow
“I think that this is an essential part of rural and regional practice support as due to geographic and practical difficulties it is much more difficult for rural practitioners to get to appropriate continuing professional educational events.”RACS Fellow
