Adelaide University Rural Health Alliance (AURHA)

The Adelaide University Rural Health Alliance (AURHA) is a multidisciplinary student club that aims to promote rural health.

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in rural health, be they from the country or the city. Members can be students of medicine, nursing, dentistry, oral health, psychology, health sciences - any of the health-related courses at the Uni of Adelaide! We would also love to keep in touch with our alumni, so postgraduates are welcome to join.

AURHA is one of 29 rural health clubs around the country that comprise the National Rural Health Students' Network. As such, we work closely with Flinders Undergraduate Rural Health Society (FURHS) and the University of South Australia’s rural health club (ROUSTAH).

The club receives valuable support from the University of Adelaide’s Department of General Practice, the Rural Doctors Workforce Agency (SA), and our major sponsor MDA National.

Since the formation of the club in 1993, the membership has grown to over 500 members. Originally known as the Adelaide University Rural Medical Society (AURMS) the club has expanded to become multdisciplinary. This year a major aim for AURHA is to provide more innovative and interesting opportunities relevant to our members in all fields.

We offer FREE membership all our members - why not join? There are many exciting opportunities during the year as an AURHA member, including skills trips, social events, Rural High School Visits, National Conferences and more!

As well as holding a wide range of events we maintain regular communication with our members through our publication ‘Rouseabout’, through email, and our website!
