About Us


Rural Health Organisation of the University of Notre Dame, Sydney

ROUNDS is an emerging and enthusiastic Rural Health Club with ambitions to educate, inform and inspire its members on rural, remote and Indigenous health issues. Formed in 2008, the club is a student-run organisation for medical and nursing students at the University of Notre Dame, Sydney who are interested in rural health issues.

ROUNDS aims include increasing awareness of:

  • Rural and remote population health including community and social factors
  • The careers available in rural and remote Australia including possible challenges, pathways, rewards and issues unique to these working environments
  • The different needs of sub groups of the population within rural and remote areas and particularly the health and social community needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
