The club was established in 1993 by Monash University School of Rural Health (SRH) and is a branch of the National Rural Health Student Network (NRSHN). Initially our membership was limited to pre-clinical medical students of Monash University. However we soon recognized that improving rural health is the responsibility of all healthcare providers - thus we have grown to encompass nursing students and allied health students, as well as both pre-clinical and clinical medical students.
Currently our membership is made up of approximately 400 medical, nursing and allied health students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The co-ordination of WILDFIRE is overseen by a Council of students elected by the student body, including representatives from each of the subcommittees.
Becoming a WILDFIRE member is the best way to get involved in rural health at Monash University.
