Kimberley Immersion Program

Kimberley Immersion Program 2023 6:23

Each year, medical students at the University of Notre Dame Australia (Fremantle) spend a week living and working in one of Australia’s most remote regions: the Kimberley. The experience provides the students with incredible insight into remote communities and the people who call the Kimberley their home.

The Kimberley Immersion Program is one of The University of Notre Dame – Fremantle’s most popular and successful rural immersion opportunities for medical students. In 2022, the immersion was hosted in a hybrid format, with students spending 4 days and 3 nights camping in Derby.

Unfortunatley, the students were unable to billet with local families across the Kimberley this year due to COVID but this has occurred in the past. Instead they were able to participate in a range of local experiences that make the Kimberley one of the most unique communities in the world.

This rural immersion program has become so instrumental in luring young doctors back to the bush!
