National Projects

Educating Health Professionals

A working group of fifteen medical students around Australia was started and as a result of this, ideas were formed about education to health professionals. We have tried to avoid a one-size fits all approach, rather offering varied but well thought out options to expose medical students to refugee and asylum seeker health.

A need has been identified for a program where medical students at all stages can contribute to directly assisting refugees and where recently arrived refugees and their families have requested mentors for high school students.

Possible ideas include:
Presentation to groups of students about career paths from approachable and relatable university students
Matching students to mentors to guide students towards their desired educational path
