Support for nursing and allied health students to undertake rural placements should be matched with that of medical students. Currently there is substantial financial and social support for medical students to complete rural placements, but very little exists for other health disciplines. This support should come from Universities and government bodies, all of whom play an integral role in student rural placements. Consider expanding current programs, which fund rural medical student placements, to incorporate other health related degrees.
