If you know an amazing rural doctor anywhere in Australia, nominate them now for the prestigious RDAA Rural Doctor of the Year Award 2019.

RDAA President, Dr Adam Coltzau, said: "Rural doctors are the backbone of many healthcare services in the bush, across both primary and hospital settings.

"Our annual award aims to recognise the doctors who have gone above and beyond the call in serving their community, or towards the provision of rural health care more broadly.

"In many towns rural generalist doctors provide day-to-day care through the general practice, and are the local hospital doctor, providing emergency, obstetric, anaesthetic, surgical or even aged care.

"Other areas they bring their advanced skills to include paediatrics, advanced mental healthcare and advanced Indigenous healthcare.

"Our RDAA Rural Doctor of the Year Award recognises some of the amazing rural doctors who have made a significant impact in their communities, whether it be over a short time, or spanning their whole career."

Entries for the annual award close on July 15, with the recipient to be formally announced at the gala awards dinner of the Rural Medicine Australia 2019 conference on the Gold Coast in October.

While there can only be one recipient of the award, all doctors who are short listed as finalists will be recognised on our national website at www.rdaa.com.au.
