The LIME Network Indigenous Pathways into Specialisation Online Resource is designed to help new medical graduates determine which Specialist Medical College might be the best fit for them, as they contemplate a specialisation traineeship.
This Resource is a searchable database which provides information comparing all Specialist Medical Colleges in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand. It details alternative entry pathways for Indigenous doctors, scholarship opportunities, and other support from the College. Each College provides details to contact the College for further information.
If the specialty that you are interested in isn’t listed here – please go to their website and contact them directly. If you see information that you believe needs to be updated – please contact us. The Colleges have very clear deadlines for application submission. Always keep an eye on the dates and times when thinking about your applications!
