Indigenous medical student scholarship

The AMA is inviting applications for its $9000 Indigenous Peoples’ Medical Scholarship for 2014.

AMA President Dr Steve Hambleton said increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island doctors and health professionals was integral to closing the gap between Indigenous health and life expectancy and that of the rest of the population.

Dr Hambleton said the Scholarship had helped many Indigenous men and women to complete their medical training since its inception in 1995, and was contributing to the growth in the number of medical students from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island backgrounds.

“There is evidence that there is a greater chance of improved health outcomes when Indigenous people are treated by Indigenous doctors and health professionals,” the AMA President said. “The numbers of Indigenous doctors are steadily increasing, but every effort needs to be made to help make it possible for Indigenous people to study medicine.”

The scholarship is open to students who are currently enrolled full time at an Australian medical school, and who are eligible for ABSTUDY.

Applications for the scholarship close on 30 January, 2014.
