Champion: Anthony Shakeshaft

UNSW Medicine recognises the unique position of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s culture and history. Indigenous people are the original people who belong to the lands occupied by our Schools, Centres and Institutes and we recognise this in all Faculty activities.

Our Indigenous Entry into Medicine scheme offers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students an alternative entry into the BMed/MD program, helping to redress the under-representation of Indigenous Australians in the medical profession and academia. Medicine Course is increasing Indigenous content into course work, including cultural immersion and assessment.

We work closely with Nura Gili, who provide support and information for all potential and existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at UNSW.
