About Us

The Students Association for Rural and Remote Health is a multidisciplinary student group at Charles Darwin University and the Flinders NT Medical Program Campus in Darwin. StARRH members include students from Nursing, Pharmacy, Medicine, Psychology, Sports and Exercise Science, Social Work and Public Health and Community Development.

StARRH provides a voice for students who are passionate about rural and remote health. We facilitate multi-disciplinary networking, professional development opportunities and experience in working in rural and remote areas. We also aim to interact and engage with people living in rural and remote areas whilst educating them about healthy lifestyle choices and educational pathways towards various health professions.
