Women in Rural Medicine

Are you interested in rural General Practice? The Rural Health Education Foundation has produced an excellent video about women GPs in rural practice that is available for viewing at the RHEF website (free registration required). The 51 minute video features interviews with rural GPs Dr Jenny May (Chair, RDAA Female Doctors Group), Dr Miriam Grotowski (Tamworth, NSW), Sheilagh Cronin (Cloncurry and Gold Coast, QLD), Nola Maxfield (Wonthaggi, VIC), Ruth Stewart (Camperdown, VIC) and Angela Titmuss (Alice Springs, NT). These remarkable women discuss their experiences¬† and issues including their practice models, their children’s education, the need to maintain strong personal and professional networks and support, and the lifestyle options available to a rural GP.
