The John Flynn Placement Program wants you

The John Flynn Placement Program is seeking new Mentors.

Placement dates are organised between the scholar and their mentor at mutually agreeable times; primarily during university breaks.

What mentors can expect from the experience?

  • The opportunity to share your knowledge and inspire a future rural doctor
  • PDP and CPD points
  • Mentor honorarium $300 per placement week
