Next steps

Once you’ve secured a spot in medical school, the road to becoming a doctor really begins.

The 2013/14 AIDA Student Representative Committee developed the AIDA Indigenous Medical Students Guide to Medical School, which is filled with great resources and tips on what you can expect from medical school and how to deal with different parts of the journey.

The ‘Becoming a doctor‘ section on the Australian Medical Association website also contains a lot of useful information.

AIDA can also provide information to Indigenous students interested in studying medicine. For more information or assistance, please submit an enquiry to or call (02) 6273 5013.
