Farm Stay

This is an opportunity to experience rural and agricultural medicine in a hands-on, real-life environment.

The Farm Stay is an exciting initiative of GPSN's Rural Working Group.

The GPSN Rural Working Group recognises that it is next to impossible to teach medical students about rural health in a big city lecture theatre, so we hope that through exposing them to life on a farm they will have a better understanding of both the challenges and joys of rural medicine.

The aim of the Farm Stay is to provide medical students with the opportunity to experience rural and agricultural medicine in a hands-on, real-life environment.
