Established in April 1990, SPINRPHEX (Students and Practitioners Interested iN Rural Practice Health Education) is the oldest student Rural Health Club in Australia. It is a dynamic club for Nursing, Dentistry, Oral health therapy and Medical students of all ages who are interested in rural health. Its founding was based on a passion to better the health standards and quality of health care in rural Australia at a time when it was becoming obvious that there was to be a shortage of health professionals in rural areas.

Membership is free and is open to urban and rural tertiary students – currently there are over 600 active members from the University of Western Australia, Edith Cowan University, Curtin University, Murdoch University and Notre Dame University. SPINRPHEX has strong foundations that enable it to provide an outstanding forum for students to learn and experience rural health.

SPINRPHEX provides social support, personal development, team building and the opportunity for members to assist rural communities with our many annual events, including a two-day camp in Dwellingup, the SPINRPHEX Children’s Festival in Donnybrook, the Mental Health Night, Multidisciplinary Evening, and a one-day conference held jointly with WAALHIIBE.

So join today!
