Thanks to generous donations we have reached our target and recruitment for the Indigenous trainee has commenced.

We are delighted to announce that Menzies’ Kick-start a Champion for Change Indigenous Traineeship Appeal launched in November last year has successfully reached its target by raising $30 000. Menzies having committed to matching dollar for dollar up to $15 000 will make an addiitonal contribution.

Menzies knows that sustainable advances in health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are clearly linked to health services being delivered by Indigenous health professionals who understand the community and culture. As a result, we take a strong stand for building the next generation of Indigenous Australians to take up careers in health research and science.

Employment outcomes from training through Menzies include technicians in health and laboratory sciences. In addition, trainees will learn about conducting health research studies, how to provide feedback to research participants, ethics, and develop networks and training for future employment and further training in health research and other positions in the health sector. They will also walk away with a Certificate III in Laboratory Skills.
