Year 4C

Year 4C regional and rural placements

Year 4C focuses on four disciplines: general practice, women's health, children's health and medicine of the mind.

Students undertake one 18-week regional hospital rotation and one 18-week rural practice community rotation. If you're not an ERC student and you want to remain in the same region for both rotations, we will try to accommodate this. Conversely, you can apply to do one rotation in the north-west and the other in Gippsland.

Regional hospital rotations are available in:

Rural practice community rotations are available in:

  • Goldfields (Maryborough, Castlemaine, Kyneton)
  • Highlands (Woodend, Gisborne) and
  • Murray (Swan Hill)

Gippsland rotations

Regional hospital rotations are available in:

Rural practice community rotations are available in:

  • Wellington (Maffra, Heyfield, Sale)
  • Strezlecki (Traralgon, Warragul, Trafalgar, Drouin, Moe)

  • Gippsland Lakes (Bairnsdale, Lakes Entrance, Orbost)

All these locations are subject to change and we'll keep students informed.
