Authors found that of the graduates, more than half also completed GP training, creating a skill mix uniquely qualified to meet the needs of rural communities. Successfully, 92% of currently practising graduates are working in rural New Zealand.  The study was co-authored by the University of Otago’s Dr Rory Miller who said in an interview with Rural Life;

“The results showed the training programme was producing doctors who were continuing on to work in rural New Zealand, however, they are not spread evenly across the country as many graduates have clustered in the South Island.”
