How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?
Once I have completed my Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, I wish to work in a rural hospital. Health outcomes and quality of life for those affected with disease are poorer in rural and remote areas, and there is a need for more doctors working rurally. There is typically a higher proportion of Indigenous patients in rural and remote hospitals too.
I see the opportunity to work rural as an exciting career pathway, which I feel will be very rewarding in itself. Being able to treat a high proportion of Indigenous patients and work towards improving the health in rural and remote ares of South Australia.
