Last year EURIPA published a Blueprint for Rural Practice in Europe. One of the main issues identified was recruitment and retention to enable the development of a fully staffed, appropriately skilled and sustainable rural health workforce.  In order to achieve this we need to begin by understanding the current position across Europe in terms of pathways to rural practice.  This survey asks questions from the beginning of a career in rural health in schools, through undergraduate and post graduate education and training for doctors and nurses, and continuing professional development. It should take about 15 minutes for you to complete.

You can find the survey at:

We would be very grateful if you could complete the survey by 30th April.   We would like to encourage you to share the survey  with your rural colleagues and networks in your country so that we get as wide a response as possible.
