The Division of Rural Hospital Medicine (the Division) is operated on two levels; the Council and the Board of Studies.

What is the Division Council?

The Division Council represents rural hospital doctors and the Board of Studies is responsible for day-to-day decisions and the training programme.

Working on behalf of rural members, the Division aims to be transparent, robust and accessible to everyone. The Division seeks to work interdependently with existing organisations on a clinical, operational and academic level.

Council 

The Division’s Council represents rural hospital doctors across New Zealand and meet three times a year to discuss important issues.
