Welcome to CROHC

The National Rural Health Student Network

Welcome to Curtin Rural Outreach Health Club (CROHC)! We are the Rural Health Club for Curtin University. 

CROHC is one of Western Australia’s rural health clubs. Founded in 2019, we aim to close the gap between rural & Indigenous health and that of the urban by inspiring more health professionals to choose rural. We provide information about upcoming opportunities as well as an avenue to meet amazing, like-minded individuals.

We are a new club at Curtin united by our passion for rural and Indigenous health. We run a wide range of rural & Indigenous events for university students and support and encourage medical students who are placed in rural area, such as:

  • Rural high-school visits to encourage high school students to pursue careers in health
  • Access to scholarships and placement opportunities including the John Flynn Placement Program
  • Information sessions about rural health opportunities including the Rural Clinical School of Western Australia

We work closely with the NRSHN and Rural Health West to provide these amazing opportunities for our members. Membership is free and open to all medical students at Curtin University from both urban and rural backgrounds with an interest in experiencing rural & Indigenous health. In future, we would love to expand to all areas of allied health to inspire many more health professionals via education and experience.
