The NRHSN is celebrating its 21st in 2016!

The National Rural Health Student Network (NRHSN) is celebrating its 21st birthday in 2016, with a focus on innovation and the future of rural health.

We will be holding a national event in Canberra in March to acknowledge the achievements of our members past and present, and to explore what rural healthcare might look like in the next 21 years.

This is particularly relevant to our network which brings together more than 9,000 medical, nursing and allied health students who belong to 28 university Rural Health Clubs from all states and territories.

Rural Health Clubs will be holding their own local-level events throughout the year, demonstrating support for health innovation and future healthcare models. As students, we want to train and work in a patient-focused, needs-based environment that makes the best of technology, education and health promotion.

We are also looking to highlight former members who are now working in or have contributed to leadership and innovation in rural healthcare.

If you are a former Rural Health Club member, and you’d like to be involved in our 21st celebrations, we’d love to hear from you. Please email or call us on 03 9860 4700.
