Welcome to the LIME Network

The LIME Network is a program of Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand, supported by financial assistance from the Australian Government Department of Health.

The LIME Network is a dynamic network dedicated to ensuring the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning of Indigenous health in medical education, as well as best practice in the recruitment and retention of Indigenous medical students.  

The LIME Network Program seeks to establish a continuing bi-national presence that encourages and supports collaboration within and between medical schools in Australia and New Zealand to support the development, delivery and evaluation of quality Indigenous health content in medical education with the aid of the CDAMS Indigenous Health Curriculum Framework and the Critical Reflection Tool (CRT).

It also seeks to build multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral linkages and to provide quality review, professional development, capacity-building; and advocacy functions. The LIME Network recognises and promotes the primacy of Indigenous leadership and knowledge.
