RDAQ Peer Networks

RDAQ President | Dr Alex Dunn

"Our Peer Networks are a powerful, collaborative tool helping shape our services and advocacy efforts to achieve the ultimate goal - improved healthcare for all rural and remote Queenslanders."





Our Peer Networks foster connections between rural doctors with shared priorities and inform RDAQ's advocacy efforts.


Regular in-person and online meetings bring together rural doctors from all over Queensland to discuss issues and concerns as well as ideas to enhance healthcare in rural and remote areas of the state.

There are five active Peer Networks, each chaired by an RDAQ Management Committee Member. 


You can register to join more than one network.      Join Network
