About Rural Health Continuing Education Sub-Program (RHCE) - Stream One
The Rural Health and Continuing Education Sub-Program (RHCE) - Stream One is for specialist education in rural and remote areas.
The overall objectives of the RHCE Program are to provide education opportunities that support continuing professional development (CPD) for individual specialists and groups of specialists in rural and remote locations in Australia, with a focus on activities that encourage multidisciplinary team based training.
RHCE Stream One funding is divided into two distinct components:
- Support for CPD initiatives that promote Multi-disciplinary Teams (MDT) and help build vocational support and learning capacity for health professionals in rural and remote locations; and
- Support for individual specialist CPD participation
The Committee of the Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) is pleased to advise that the term of RHCE Stream One Program has been extended from July 2013 to December 2014.
Applications for grants are now open for Funding Round Six
Guidelines, selection criteria, and the application forms, are available on the Applications and Guidelines page on this website. Please read the guidelines and application forms carefully to ensure that your application satisfies all the criteria, and send your application to your specialist medical college before the stated closing dates.
To date the RHCE Program has administered five funding rounds and awarded:
- 25 project grants to eleven Medical Specialist Colleges to develop and deliver CPD activities that meet the needs of medical specialists in rural and remote areas of Australia; and
- 70 individual grants to individual specialists who live and work in rural and remote locations to support their access to CPD
To view details of the 25 projects currently being funded through the program please go to Projects
