Indigenous pathways into medicine videos - now available

Date posted: 2 April 2014

The Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network, in partnership with the Australian Indigenous Doctors' Association (AIDA) and Te ORA Maori Medical Practitioners Association (Te ORA) are pleased to announce the launch of the Pathways into medicine online resource on the LIME website.

These videos provide a personal insight into the journeys of a number of Indigenous medical students and graduates from Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Hawaii, who are at varying stages of their degree or career. In the videos the students talk about their drive for wanting to study medicine and how they got their course and the support structures that are available to them at university. They talk openly about the challenges they face and about opportunities and life-changing experiences that doing the course provides.

Dr Peter O'Mara in his interview explains how he came to understand that it was people, and people's health that he was passionate about.

Mania Campbell-Seymour says it was her Nan who inspired her to study medicine and to be the first in her family to become a doctor.

Medical educators are encouraged to make use of the videos as a recruitment resource within their schools.
