Review of the rural medical workforce distribution programs

Ensuring capacity to meet the health needs of Australia

Deloitte Access Economics was commissioned by the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) to project medical workforce supply by geographic distribution to 2020.

The Australian Government aims to ensure the health workforce has the capacity to meet the health needs of all Australians by providing incentives to increase the supply and quality of medical professionals, with most aimed at increasing the workforce in rural and remote areas. These include recruitment, education, training, and distribution programs for the medical workforce, nursing workforce and for allied health professionals.

Deloitte Access Economics was commissioned by the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) to project medical workforce supply by geographic distribution to 2020, assessing the impacts of rural incentives and providing a manipulable model. DoHA also commissioned detailed analysis of the interactions between a range of rural medical workforce distribution programs and policies and the likely combined impact on future medical workforce.
