As health students completing placements in rural, remote and Indigenous communities it is beneficial to complete some form of cultural awareness training prior to going on these placements to help prepare you for these experiences and to help you make the most of these opportunities. Therefore we have gathered some useful links to cultural awareness training that is offered online and around the country.
