The only national rural placement program connecting medical students, doctors and communities throughout Australia


The John Flynn Placement Program is designed to attract the future medical workforce to a rural career.

Each year 300 rural placements are available to medical students to experience the one of a kind rural clinical practice and rural lifestyle throughout Australia.

The JFPP has been providing medical students with a rural immersion experience for over 20 years!

I already knew I wanted to go rural before JFPP, but it has reinforced the idea.  I love the short travel times, community feeling and range of medicine necessary for a country GP.
