HETI: 2022 Rural Research Capacity Building Program

The Rural Research Capacity Building Program (RRCBP) is one of NSW Health’s key strategies for building research capacity in rural NSW, as reflected in the NSW Rural Health Plan.

The two year experiential research program provides a structured pathway of learning designed to provide novice researchers with enhanced skills and knowledge to complete their own research projects.

Candidates attend a series of workshops and concurrently develop their research proposal, create the research protocol, gain approval by an ethics committee, collect and analyse data and complete a portfolio of evidence and research report.

NSW Health employees who are rurally located with no previous experience or limited exposure to research are eligible to apply. For more information visit  website
