The HWSP is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health, administered in New South Wales (NSW) by the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN).

This program is designed to address skill shortages in rural and remote communities across Australia. Doctors independently working toward fellowship may also access the HWSP for pre-exam preparation support.

The HWSP offers two types of funding:

Scholarships

  • A payment up to $10,000 per year, for up to two years, toward the cost of completing a postgraduate course leading to a postgraduate qualification.

Bursaries

  • Payment up to $10,000 (maximum of $10,000 in total in one year) for professional development and upskilling course fees and associated accommodation and travel-related expenses.

The allocation of program funds is based on RDN’s annual Health Workforce Needs Assessment (HWNA). The HWNA identifies specific upskilling and training areas as a priority for NSW.
