The clinical and Aboriginal staff at the Centre for Rural Health have been working with staff from Riawunna and the Faculty of Health to develop this placement support program. The program is available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students undertaking nursing, medicine, paramedicine, pharmacy, psychology, social work and exercise science degrees, and across all years. The program complements current support provided by the Aboriginal Higher Education Officers at Riawunna and Student Services.
