Rural Health Alliance

The Adelaide University Rural Health Alliance (AURHA) is a student club that celebrates rural health.

AURHA is one of 29 "rural health clubs" from around the country. These clubs make up the National Rural Health Students' Network (NRHSN). Locally, we work alongside the rural health clubs from UniSA and Flinders Uni.

Membership is free, and is open to anyone with an interest in rural health regardless of whether they come from a rural area, the city or even from another country. Members can be students at The University of Adelaide who are studying medicine, nursing, dentistry, oral health, psychology or health sciences.

Members are invited to apply to attend our Yalata Kidney Health Festival in October each year! Rural High School Visits are a chance to chat with high school students about university, and a opportunity to travel to some amazing places (e.g. Port Lincoln or Kangaroo Island), and clinical skills trips take place around the state. Escape with AURHA is our main social event, and traditionally takes place at a mystery location just beyond the city limits.
