Rural Practice

Acute Rural Clinical Skills

The following documents / guidelines are provided for ease of access by JMOs who are rotating to rural facilities. It is important to note that these do not replace clinical discussion with your supervising SMO, and your facility may have local versions of these guidelines. However, you may find these guidelines useful as educational and reference material.

Please also note that although we will review this material on a regular basis to ensure it remains current we cannot guarantee version control.
