I was one of the mentors for the Miroma Bunbilla Program, a pre-entry pathway to the Joint Medical Program, designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants. The program ran over 5 days and included problem-based and group-based learning, and assessment tasks through online study groups.
The program took place at various sites such as the University of Newcastle, University of New England, and the University Department of Rural Health. As part of the program, participants had the opportunity to meet staff from Thurru, the Indigenous Health Unit of the School of Medicine and Public Health, and confirm their preferred study location.
Such an amazing bunch and I can't wait to see them become deadly docs!
