The Support for Rural Specialists in Australia (SRSA) program provides educational opportunities that support continuing professional development (CPD) for specialists in rural and remote locations in Australia. SRSA is an initiative of the Department of Health, managed by the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC).
The aim of the program is to provide rural and remote non-GP specialists with access to professional support and training opportunities through:
- individual CPD grants to enable rural and remote specialists to access CPD educational activities/courses/events not available in their current location of practice; and
- the provision of online learning programs to address relevant CPD themes and topics.
