Social and country experiences for students.

Rural Health West works alongside WA’s student rural health clubs to provide social and country experiences for students. Each club provides opportunities for students within various health disciplines, who are interested in experiencing rural practice. Joining a student rural health club can enhance future employment opportunities and is a great way to meet fellow health students and future colleagues.
