The development and implementation of a comprehensive Aboriginal medical curriculum presents its own unique collection of rewards and challenges. Within this context, medical students are taken on a journey through Aboriginal cultures and exposed to culturally safe/secure frameworks in order to produce a better clinical experience for Aboriginal clients. The comprehensive horizontally and vertically integrated curriculum we have implemented in the medical program at The University of Western Australia has resulted in significant shifts in student-reported preparedness to practise. Based on this success in medicine, we have implemented similar Aboriginal health curricula in the nursing, podiatry and dental programs at The University of Western Australia with the aim of better preparing the students in these programs to work more effectively within Aboriginal contexts.
