About Us

Mission Statement:

We are a student led organization that aims to promote rural health careers to all health science students by offering scholarships and professional development opportunities. We are a member of the National Rural Health Student Network and advocate for our members both locally and on a national level.

About Us:

There are 28 Rural Health Clubs (RHCs) nationally, with at least one RHC in every state and territory. RHCs aim to promote rural and remote practice to their members through information exchange, placement opportunities, support and advocacy.

All Rural Health Clubs have a multi-disciplinary focus and run a number of activities each year in order to promote rural and remote health careers to their members. These activities provide fun and educational experiences for students and may include trips to rural and remote areas, club BBQs, Rural High School Visits, cultural awareness training, Indigenous health nights, Indigenous Community Festival attendance, guest speaker nights, skills evenings, social events and lots more.
