Chair's Welcome

Jennene-Greenhill 140px

It is with great pleasure that I have accepted the role of FRAME Chairperson for the next two years and look forward to working with you to further build the Federation as a highly respected organisation for all stakeholders.

My current position is Associate Dean, Flinders University School of Medicine and Director of the Flinders University Rural Health South Australia. I lead the Masters in Clinical Education, an interactive, online postgraduate program for health professional educators. I am committed to building the rural health workforce and health services.

Rural Clinical Schools and rural medical schools are vastly improving the health and wellbeing of our rural communities through education. We continue to develop with strong Australian Government support to expand our programs and grow the rural health workforce in the future. .

As the incoming Chair, I would like to thank Prof. Amanda Barnard and her team for their tireless dedication and the hard work. Amanda has been a terrific leader for FRAME over the past two years and I look forward to working collaboratively with all members, stakeholders and other relevant national organisations.
