Last year the Prime Minister and Minister for Health & Ageing created the National Health and Hospitals Reform Commission (NHHRC) charged with the task of considering the future of the Australian health system and the long-term reforms required to meet current and future challenges. More info is available on the NHHRC website.
The interim report, initially published in December last year, is now available online.
While the report is pretty weighty, the section that is especially relevant to medical students is that concerned with medical education & training, titled “Working for us: a sustainable health workforce for the future“.
MSCV is currently considering its position on this report and would love to incorporate your thoughts into our submission. Please let us know what you think by emailing us or commenting on this post.
