RDWA financial support
Working in rural and remote communities requires dedication, commitment and passion. RDWA recognises those qualities and offers a range of financial support services designed to allow you to remain working in rural and remote medicine.
RDWA Professional Support Subsidy
The RDWA Professional Support subsidy provides financial support to General Practitioners located in rural and remote South Australia to access continuing medical education opportunities. The subsidy provides a contribution toward expenses incurred following attendance at courses, events or conferences. The amount of subsidy depends upon the location of the medical practitioner and the number of doctors per location.
How to Claim
The RDWA Professional Support subsidy is a capped amount for each financial year. Unclaimed subsidy does not rollover to the next financial year. Please be aware that if a claim is submitted after 30 June, funding for that claim will be sourced from the next financial year allowance. Wherever possible, claims must be submitted within 60 days.
