Congratulations to our faculty's MAPAS team who received the award for Excellence in Indigenous Student Recruitment, Support and Graduation at the 2017 Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Conference held in Melbourne earlier this month.
This award recognises an outstanding and innovative programme in the area of student recruitment and support through to graduation in medical schools, including student outcomes, and new projects that show outstanding potential, supported by evidenced-based processes.
Dr Elana Curtis was a joint winner in the category of Excellence in Indigenous Health Education Research. Elana’s award is based on her MD thesis, a collection of published research on indigenous recruitment, admission, bridging/foundation education and support to graduation.
The award recognises Elana’s innovative and outstanding piece of published research in the area of Indigenous health education.
The LIME Network is a dynamic network dedicated to ensuring the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning in medical education of indigenous health, as well as best practice in the recruitment and graduation of Indigenous medical students.
We are very fortunate to have such fantastic work here at the faculty.
