Our mission is to significantly contribute to the health of rural and remote Western Australian communities through education, professional development and research. We will do this by:
- increasing the numbers of student - weeks spent in rural and remote locations in medicine, nursing and allied health teaching programs
- raising the profile of rural teaching, research and practice in academic departments,
- increasing recruitment and retention rates by supporting effective strategies to make rural and remote practice more professionally rewarding,
- contributing to an increased number of skilled Aboriginal people working in the health sector, and
- becoming a centre known for innovative and practical rural and remote population health research and policy analysis.

In Geraldton CUCRH co-locates with the Rural Clinical School.
