Who is RAHMS?
RAHMS is the University of New South Wales student-run organisation for medical, optometry, social work, health and exercise science, psychology and medical science students. We are made up of students from both city and country, as well as anyone interested in rural health. Some of us plan to work in rural health while others are just curious.
With over 1000 members across 6 different disciplines, RAHMS aims to inform its members about rural and remote health issues, bring together like-minded students from multiple universities, provide positive experiences to promote rural living and working, encourage thinking about rural careers and increase awareness about health concerns facing indigenous Australians.
Why should I join?
- to learn more about rural health issues and careers through events such as:
- to meet health students from rural health clubs around Australia (for more details, see the National Rural Health Network (NHRN) website).
- to get a better idea about what studying is like with the UNSW Rural Clinical School in campuses that you may well visit in clinical years in Albury Wodonga, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga.
- to get informed about rural scholarships such as the John Flynn Placement Program, the Rural Australia Medical Undergraduate Scholarship Scheme (RAMUS) and Bush Bursaries.
Whatever your reasons (even just out of interest), RAHMS warmly invites you to join today so we can email you about our activities.
