Integrated Rural Training Pipeline (IRTP)

The Commonwealth Department of Health has launched a new STP funding scheme; the Integrated Rural Training Pipeline (STP-IRTP). This involves the creation of 100 new training posts over 2017-2018, across participating Colleges. These new training posts target RA 2-5 areas and are designed to enable a trainee to complete the majority of their fellowship training within a rural region, with only limited metropolitan rotations where necessary. 

The STP-IRTP model the College will be using is based on the Provincial Integrated Training Program. Trainees following this pathway will spend the majority of Years 1, 2 and 4 at a rural site(s) and Year 3 in a major teaching hospital. 

The DoH has approved funding for two rurally-based training posts, to commence in 2017.
