General practices in rural and remote areas can now apply for up to $300,000 in Commonwealth funding to provide additional space for supervision, teaching and training of medical students and general practice registrars. Successful funding recipients will be required to match the Commonwealth commitment.
At least 175 grants will be awarded over the next three years, worth a total of $52.5 million.
The guidelines for the Rural and Remote Teaching Infrastructure Grants program, and an ‘Invitation to Apply’, is now available on the Australian Government Department of Health’s website.
Applications close on 23 February 2015.
