We invite medical delegates to support our subsidise-a-student program.

RDAQ is committed to growing the rural health workforce of the future. RDAQ 2022 is a unique opportunity for medical students to establish networks and rural mentors. Your subsidy will reduce student registration costs. RDAQ manages this program in collaboration with the student rural health clubs in Queensland.

Each medical delegate who nominates to subsidise-a-student is invited to attend the student networking afternoon tea on Thursday as a mentor. We encourage mentors to share their experience and passion for rural medicine.

If you would like to Subsidise-a-student, please complete the section when registering. Your assistance in helping medical students of Queensland is appreciated.
