The community project provides a valuable opportunity to get to know your community and improve health outcomes. Completed over 6-12 months during your time in a rural community, it includes a quality improvement activity undertaken within a general practice with the primary purpose to monitor, evaluate or improve the quality of healthcare delivered by the practice.
The project report needs to demonstrate your ability to complete a community needs assessment, identify needs or gaps in the community and demonstrate skills in planning, carrying out, evaluating and presenting a project.
Please note it is mandatory for those completing the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Additional Rural Skills Training (ARST) to complete the Community Project. If you are completing other ARSTs and wish to undertake the community project, please discuss with your training coordinator.
We spoke to three GPs in training who completed the project about their project, approach to it and experience with it.
