Australian Medical Placements have thousands of locum jobs available throughout Australia, including rural and remote locations. Take the opportunity to travel and work in regions you never thought you would. Find a sense of community in rural hospitals or Indigenous Medical Clinics, upskill and get involved in specialist work that’s only available in remote places.

Of course, the biggest upside to rural work is the experience of seeing more of our beautiful country – expanding your knowledge of cultures across Australia, experiencing the differences in the medical industry between locations and making plenty of new connections.
