Aboriginal health

An innovative program connecting University of Western Sydney medical students with the Aboriginal Medical Service in regional NSW and metropolitan Sydney has been recognised by the Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education, or LIME, network. The UWS program places all fifth-year medical students in a five-week attachment with an Aboriginal Medical Service.

The indigenous program officer in the UWS School of Medicine, Cris Carriage, said during their placements with the Aboriginal Medical Service the students see the importance of community control for the delivery of health-care.

The University of Western Sydney program has been developed with the advice, support and encouragement of the medical program partners and through a strong commitment of staff from the School of Medicine. Ms Carriage and the UWS School of Medicine’s rural program manager, Jenny Akers, accepted the Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education Network award on behalf of the University.
