In 2017 Ochre Health was successful in their application for five additional intern positions in the Tasmanian Health Service (THS) to be funded by the Rural Junior Doctor Training Innovation Fund. The funding provides an opportunity for interns in Tasmania to undertake a term in General Practice during their intern year in addition to hospital terms. The GP terms were accredited by PMCT as being suitable for interns and during 2018 twenty interns will rotate to practices in King Island, Queenstown, Huonville, St Helens and Flinders Island. The program aims to provide interns with training and experience in a rural primary care setting which may influence future career decisions and enhance recruitment in rural areas.
