Transforming lives and improving health outcomes in rural communities

Collaboration is at our core

Acknowledgement of Country

We pay our respects to the Whadjuk Nyoongar Boodja Nation - the original lands of The University of Western Australia and The Rural Clinical School of Western Australia - which has now journeyed into many lands across the state. These are the lands that connect us and that we are now spiritually and physically bonded to, with the vision to help all who walk within The Rural Clinical School of Western Australia footprint. We acknowledge the strength, wisdom and courage of Whadjuk Nyoongar Boodja Nation Elders past, present and emerging.

We pay our respects to our neighbouring Nations, Tribes and visiting Peoples who share in the richness and uniqueness of our regions and who walk with us in our healing journey.

We acknowledge to all non-First Nation peoples who genuinely join us on our journey to ‘close the gap’ and abolish the disparities that exist.

Our Purpose

At the Rural Clinical School of Western Australia we are passionate about rural medicine, creating opportunities for students and inspiring our students and medical professionals to lead successful medical careers. We know we can make a difference in the lives of our students, staff, health professionals and people living in rural communities. While the challenges we face are great, we know our role is important and can make a difference. We are positive about the world at large, about our students, the medical profession and about our communities.
