AMSA's Rural health Summit
Cairns QLD | 20 - 22 September 2019
AMSA’s Rural Health Summit (RHS) is the premier rural health event for medical students around Australia. In 2019, over 200 students will meet in Cairns from September 20-22 to build their skills, be inspired and get a taste for all that the area has to offer.
RHS is comprised of a diverse schedule of
academic sessions, social events and workshops including a simulated rural mass casualty scenario - the Rural Rescue Challenge!
The goal for RHS19 is to create unique experiences for delegates, showcasing Far North Queensland,
and in doing so, inspire students to return to the area
as health professionals.
