Traditionally, the first choice for most new graduates has been to obtain jobs in metropolitan hospitals.I can honestly say that my decision to go against convention and move over 1,000 kilometres away from home to rural New South Wales (NSW) to work as a regional Health Information Manager, has been an enriching and worthwhile experience. My position manages the Clinical Information Services across two activity-based funding sites, and four block funded health services, covering a population of roughly 80,000 residents. I thought I would share some of my experiences and challenges.
