Training location

There are training location requirements you must meet to comply with the Training Program Requirements Policy.

Rural training stream

As a registrar with the rural stream, all your training will be in non-metropolitan areas, and you’re expected to live in the rural community where you work. Non-metropolitan areas are designated as Modified Monash Model (MMM) 2–7; they range from larger regional towns to more remote areas.

The Modified Monash Model (MMM) defines whether a location is a city, rural, remote or very remote. MMM 1 is a major city and MMM 7 is very remote. More information on MMM areas can be found on the Department of Health website.
