    Flinders University medical students have the opportunity to be immersed in rural or remote communities throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory during their four year postgraduate MD course. These communities provide a rich context in which the students live and learn. We have asked a cross-section of our community members what the value of having a student learning in their community is and will bring you the responses in an engaging interactive audio-visual presentation. Each of you will receive a picturesque postcard from an Australian rural community member with their response.
