The Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP) is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health to improve access to health services in rural and remote areas by helping health professionals to pursue ongoing study and development.

Funding is available for health professionals who provide primary care services to Western Australian rural and remote locations in the fields of medicine, nursing, midwifery, dentistry or allied health, including Aboriginal health practitioners or workers. Training and upskilling of health professionals must help meet an identified health need in the community.

Applications now open (close on 27 October 2021). For further details including the application process see here.

For further information please contact: Telephone +61 8 6389 4500 or Email: hwsp@ruralhealthwest.com.au
