One Approach to Improving Indigenous Health Care through Medical Education.
Hays, Richard
Australian Journal of Rural Health, v10 n6 p285-87 Dec 2002
Australia's newest medical school, located at James Cook University (Queensland), is committed to improving Aboriginal health care. At least five Indigenous students must be admitted per year, and Indigenous people sit on committees responsible for student selection, curriculum design, staff selection, training, and research. All staff receive cultural awareness training, there is an Indigenous student support group, and curriculum content includes Indigenous health issues. (TD)
