Aaaaannnddd - you also get membership of RDAA!

When you join RDAT, a portion of your membership fee goes to our national body, RDAA. These funds allow RDAA to represent rural doctors at a national level, which is hugely important as all Medicare legislation is governed by the Commonwealth along with the majority of workforce distribution policies and programs.

RDAA does this by:

  • Working closely with the Commonwealth and State governments to help develop policies and programs that will succeed in rural areas
  • Promoting rural medical careers to junior doctors (#DestinationRural)
  • Providing professional support for rural doctors
  • Working to develop improved financial incentives for rural doctors
  • Promoting strategies that will build a sustainable rural medical workforce
