The College of Medicine and Dentistry (CMD) at James Cook University (JCU) was established in regional north Queensland in 1999 with the mandate to select and educate medical graduates to work in underserviced areas, specifically rural, remote, and tropical locations. In 2006, the second graduating cohort at JCU were surveyed to determine if they felt ‘work ready‘. Results showed only 66% of students felt well or very well prepared for their first week of internship, and 13% of students felt inadequately prepared. The need for more CS activities within the curriculum was identified when the College underwent course accreditation in 2006.
