Doctors inspire rural schools with medicine

Date posted: 23 June 2014

The Australian Indigenous Doctors Associations (AIDA) has visited Kununurra, in the north of Western Australia, to talk to students about future jobs.

The group of doctors have been talking to various schools about the different pathways into medicine, in an effort to attract more Indigenous students into the course. The doctors hold workshops to encourage students to understand medicine is an achievable dream.

Dr Stephanie Trust, one of the visiting doctors, says there are currently 180 Indigenous doctors in Australia and things are looking positive with 240 Indigenous medical students.
