Welcome to RRIPA

The Rural and Remote Incentive Programs Assistance Service (RRIPA) pronounced "ripper" is a new initiative developed by Health Workforce Queensland with the support of the Rural Doctors Association of Queensland.   Under one roof, RRIPA provides information and links to the plethora of incentives and support programs available, both financial and non-financial, government and non-government, to current and prospective rural medical practitioners in Queensland.  RRIPA will provide a quick overview of these programs and relevant available contact information.
