ARMS: ANU Rural Medical Society
ARMS was established in 2004 by the first cohort of medical students at the medical school and has since grown to over 250 members across the four years of the graduate medicine programme.
The society aims to provide members with opportunities to learn and practice clinical skills, understand the health issues facing rural communities and build relationships with doctors in rural areas in Canberra and surrounding regions.
In addition, ARMS endeavors to assist rural communities by providing free health checks, raising awareness of the components of a healthy lifestyle, and promoting career pathways in health to rural high school students.
