Founded in 2009, Friends4Fiji is a partnership between medical students of Monash University, Australia and Umanand Prasad School of Medicine, Fiji. In 2018, we expanded to also support students at the Fiji School of Medicine, in a new partnership with the University of Newcastle.

 

OUR goals

The partnership aims to enhance medical education and health outcomes in Fiji and Australia by facilitating the donation of learning and medical equipment, organising shared learning opportunities abroad, and encouraging clinical engagement with the pressing global health concerns of the Pacific region and our world.

Our specific goals are to:

  • Network medical students

    • By spending time together and affirming and encouraging each other

  • Inspire medical students to pursue compassionate careers with confidence

    • Through engaging educational experiences locally and abroad

  • Empower medical students to advance global health standards

    • Through the provision of material aid as required

    • Through the facilitation of research projects to advance clinical practice
