The Longlook program
HOPE4HEALTH collaborates with Griffith University and QRME to provide positive rural clinical training and experiences for 3rd and 4th year Griffith Medical students via the Longlook program. Students may choose to participate in a 12-month program in 3rd year or a 6-month program in 4th year. 3rd year placements are at Warwick, Stanthorpe, Kingaroy and Dalby Hospitals. 4th year placements are at Gatton, Goondiwindi, Inglewood, Millmerran and Oakey. All programs require you to express your interest formally to be selected for positions.
Each rural site has a dedicated QRME Medical Educator who will work with students to ensure they complete the required learning objectives and gain the most out of the rural clinical experience. Students on rural placements will have weekly CBL workshops in person or via Griffith's Collaborate classroom. Metro based placements will also be offered for some specialties such as the critical care placement at St Andrew's War Memorial Hospital.
Rural Awareness Dinner
QRME and HOPE4HEALTH are proud to host the annual Rural Awareness Dinner for second and third year medical students considering applying for a place in the Longlook program. The evening allows students to mix and meet placement preceptors, while providing the opportunity to ask and expert panel any questions that you may have about the program or life as a rural practitioner. The workshops will cover the topics of x-rays, airway management and dermoscopes to assist you in developing skills necessary in clinical years.
