About the Grants

Since 2011, the RACS Rural Coach Program (RCP) has identified and supported more than eighty trainees interested in a rural surgical career. This has been through ongoing support, advocacy and the opportunity to build their rural connections by offering financial assistance to Trainees who attend the Provincial Surgeons of Australia conference.
