Kruki (pronounced Croc-I) is the Anaiwan word for medicine man.
The Kruki Indigenous Summer School has been created to give prospective students an insight into studying through the Joint Medical Program (JMP).
The JMP is delivered jointly by the University of Newcastle and University of New England, and supported by the Central Coast Local Health District and the Hunter New England Area Health Service.Throughout the Kruki Indigenous Summer School, various workshops will be conducted for students to attend. These workshops vary from subjects pertinent to medical studies to cultural awareness workshops.
It is aimed at students from years 9-12 who have an interest in studying medicine once they have completed their HSC.
Kruki Indigenous Summer School will run between the dates of Sunday 20th November to Friday 25 November 2016 at UNE Armidale. Accommodation will be provided for students and accompanying Parents/Guardians by the UNE, at Mary White College on campus. There is no cost for students and accompanying Parents/Guardians, and all meals and transport are included.
If you are interested, the first step is to get your Aboriginal Education Officer or Careers Advisor to contact Lisa or Shannon to secure your placement, accommodation and travel before 16 October 2016.
