The AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to study medicine and achieve their dream of becoming doctors.
You can now donate towards the Indigenous Medical Scholarship, and support an Indigenous medical student throughout their medical studies.
Winner of the 2018 AMA Indigenous Medical Scholarship, Mr Pirpantji Rive-Nelson said: "... I hope to actively assist Pitjantjatjara-speaking patients, and my colleagues, by being a clinician who is able to navigate both languages and cultures competently."
The Scholarship was established in 1994 with a contribution from the Australian Government.
With your help the AMA can continue to support Indigenous medical students and grow the number of Indigenous doctors.
