Medical Deans is committed to equity of health outcomes and medical education opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and Māori of New Zealand.

Our Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network is a dynamic bi-national collaboration between medical schools to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning of Indigenous health and cultural safety in medical education.  It fosters and supports collaboration, information exchange, and the sharing of best practice within and across medical education organisations in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand, links across health science sectors, and connections with external Indigenous health stakeholders. The LIME Network’s Reference Group comprises representatives from all medical schools in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand, who advise, support and contribute to its work.

We gratefully acknowledge the funding we receive from the Australian Government Department of Health to progress the LIME Network’s activities.

Please connect with LIME to engage in their work and stay informed of their activities.
