John Flynn Placement Program

The John Flynn Placement Program (JFPP) introduces medical students to life as a rural doctor by offering them the opportunity to spend eight weeks over four years in one small rural or remote community. Students work closely with rural health professionals and are linked to a local person or organisation in the community to assist with social and cultural experiences.
