LIME Network wins award for promotion of Indigenous health
The Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network received the ASPIRE Award for Excellence in Social Accountability at the recent Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) conference held in Barcelona.
The LIME Network is a program for Medical Deans in Australia and New Zealand, which aims to promote quality and effective teaching and learning of Indigenous health in medical education, as well as the recruitment of Indigenous medical students.
The ASPIRE Award, developed under the auspices of the Association for Medical Education in Europe, recognises medical, dental and veterinary schools that display excellence in student engagement and assessment, as well as an emphasis on a school’s social accountability.
LIME Network Project lead Professor Shaun Ewen said the network had contributed to transforming the future of the Australian and New Zealand health workforce.
“[Through] Indigenous leadership, better trained physicians, more diversity through recruitment and the graduation of more Indigenous medical students, Indigenous people are taking their rightful place,’ Prof Ewen said.
