Hi! We are Josh and Rowan, the 2016 Indigenous representatives for the University of Newcastle Medical Society. Both of us are proud Aboriginal medical students, Josh comes from the Dharug people located around Sydney and the Blue Mountains, Rowan is a Wiradjuri man from Central rural NSW.
As the Indigenous representatives for the Medical Society, we aim to help blend Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture into the medical society. Following on from the work of Lucas Booth the Indigenous Representative last year our aims are to bring Indigenous and Non-Indigenous medical students together through clinical teaching nights and other activities.
Working together with Wollotuka in 2016, we aim to continue the clinical skills nights that were a great success. We hope to introduce students to some of the great Indigenous movies with our movie nights that are coming soon.
