Improving health and wellbeing outcomes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities is inexorably linked to their right to self-determination, to being treated with respect, and to being protected from discrimination. The Uluru Statement from the Heart’s call for the constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a Voice to Parliament requires that we listen to and be led by First Nations Australians in reimagining healthcare in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Whilst encouraging individual, academic freedom and respecting differences of opinion, the Faculty of Medicine and Health is proud to support a constitutionally enshrined Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament. We unequivocally accept the Uluru Statement’s invitation for all Australians to walk together for a better, healthier future.
The University of Sydney's flagship program, the Doctor of Medicine (MD), has been re-designed to provide students with greater flexibility than ever before while placing added emphasis on clinical exposure, right from week one.
