Year 4C medicine

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. From 2019, the Year 4C rural/regional education program will use the same model in north-west Victoria and across Gippsland. There will be no change for Extended Rural Cohort (ERC) students.

All students will 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:

  • Bendigo or
  • Mildura

Gippsland rotations

Regional hospital rotations are available in:

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