Abstract

Attracting students and supporting students on rural clinical placements can be challenging. Even more challenging is fostering a sense of rural identity and understanding what it means to practice in a rural community. Research has highlighted the importance for students to undertake rural placements and the resulting intent to practice in rural areas As a Rural Health Clinical Educator with the Three Rivers UDRH we are focussed on providing a high quality rural clinical learning experience for students undertaking placements in our footprint. Our vision means that we have a strengths based perspective to rural health and strive to create a sense of belonging and connectedness between student groups and their supervisors. We want to also support rural clinicians in supervising students and engaging them in community groups. There is little research that identifies how to facilitate this within rural student placements.

The purpose of this session is to share ideas, strategies and visions for supporting and facilitating students and evaluating a sense of belonging and connectedness during their rural health placement.
