The LIME Connection

The LIME Connection is a biennial conference which provides an opportunity in which quality review, professional development, networking, capacity-building and advocacy functions of the network are actualised.

It brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous medical educators, Indigenous health specialists, policy makers, and community members from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States of America to discuss innovative approaches in Indigenous medical education and the experiences of practitioners.

It also aims to encourage and support collaboration within and between medical schools and to build multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral linkages. The LIME Connection also hosts the LIMElight Awards which acknowledge and celebrate the many successes in Indigenous medical education.
