What they’ve said…
"After discussion of barriers to moving away from home, and of studying at university, it was encouraging to see a greater number of students raise their hands at the end than had done at the beginning, when asked if they would think about studying a health related degree."
Kristy McGregor (Charles Sturt University)
“This is certainly a trip that I won’t forget and that may have had a serious impact on my future professional life. I highly recommend it for all medical and allied health students regardless of their current feelings for rural and remote practice.”
Dougal Robertson (University of Notre Dame)
“The friendships, career information and professional networks that are established from these visits are priceless to all students on the trip.”
A. Crane (University of Notre Dame)
