Am I eligible to be a JFPP student

To find out if you are eligible to be a John Flynn Placement Program student, complete the following questionnaire.

Are you an Australian citizen or permanent resident?
Are you currently enrolled in an accredited medical course at one of the 20 participating universities*?
Do you have at least three full years of study remaining?
Are you able to complete the eight weeks of placements over a three to four year period, by the time you complete your degree?
Are you currently in receipt of a grant or scholarship, which includes funding for community bonding or other community placement experiences?

Unfortunately, you are not currently eligible for the JFPP at this stage. Students who currently hold a vacation scholarship to encourage community bonding may apply for the JFPP, but are required to forfeit their existing scholarship to receive a JFPP. (Students who hold scholarships that provide financial support during their medical studies such as Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship (MRB), Puggy Hunter Scholarship or Rural Australia Medical Undergraduate Scholarship (RAMUS) can apply for the JFPP.)

We welcome your interest in rural practice and there are however a number of alternative activities available if you wish to pursue this interest. You may wish to contact:
