Dr Cath Cosgrave (PhD, MA, BCom), is a social scientist and qualitative researcher with internationally recognised expertise in the field of rural health workforce and community development. Dr Cosgrave works as a researcher, consultant and speaker. She is currently spearheading a new research agenda into the role ‘place’ and ‘belonging’ play in attracting, recruiting and retaining health professionals to work and live, in rural places.

In 2018, she was awarded the prestigious Churchill Fellowship to travel to Canada in 2019 to investigate community-led health workforce development approaches for supporting the personal and social needs of newcomer health workers and their families.

Dr Cosgrave is committed to strengthening the evidence-base to support policy and practice changes to address rural health access inequities and resourcing challenges and to support rural communities to become thriving economies. She believes that effective rural solutions must be place-based and has extensive experience working in partnership with health services, local councils and community services/groups to develop person/community-centred, strength-based solutions using participatory research methods including co-design and action research.
