How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?

I have now been successful in my chosen field to study and UniSA where I plan to become an expert in Medical Imaging and although I have not decided on what area I will specialise in, my passion for human biology is wide and I am sure I will discover this quickly.  Once I gain my qualification, I plan to become a part of the Aboriginal health community firstly by offering my expertise in rural/remote hospital, if the opportunity arises.

I feel this will give me a greater understanding of Aboriginal community health issues, at the grassroots level.  I am passionate about serving the Aboriginal community and contributing to help fix the poor health and mortality rates by engaging with people through providing medical services, through health promotion and by making a comfortable and culturally appropriate service.
