The entire experience was an honour and confirms that I definitely want to develop my medical career in a large part towards working in underserviced areas through programs such as the Royal Flying Doctor's Service.

The trip provided a good insight into the socio-cultural and health dynamics of our Indigenous population, I by no means completely understand the complexity of all the issues or the solutions, however have really appreciated the opportunity to spend some time there and begin my understanding of the situation.

While I found the cardiology clinic interesting; it was the opportunity to sit with members of the local Indigenous community and discuss with them their understanding of health, their opinions on health care and their understanding of cultural identity that I found most valuable.

The experience was both inspiring and humbling, leaving me with a new perspective on rural medicine, life and the burgeoning issues faced by Indigenous Australians in these communities.

I would like to thank the Poche centre and the clinical staff for making this most worthwhile experience possible.
