Since 2000, the Centre has worked with a variety of curriculum committees to identify learning outcomes for Aboriginal Health in each year of the MBBS course.

Since 2003, students in the final year of Medicine have been surveyed to evaluate their engagement with the Aboriginal health teaching and learning and their self-reported preparedness to practice.

The Centre, in collaboration with the Faculty Education Centre, developed an `Impact of the Aboriginal Health undergraduate curriculum (IAHUC)' questionnaire. This survey has been conducted each year since 2003, and its results are used to guide the further development and modification, as well as assess effectiveness, of the Aboriginal health curriculum.

Evaluation of the impact of Aboriginal health curricula in podiatric medicine

The podiatric medicine course has a substantial integrated Aboriginal health curriculum across the four years of the course. Final-year students are administered the IAHUC questionnaire.

Integrated Aboriginal health curricula 

Baseline and ongoing evaluation in the Master of Nursing Science degree

The purpose of this project is to evaluate Master of Nursing Science students' experience of learning and attainment of graduate learning outcomes related to Indigenous studies.

The Aboriginal Health curriculum evaluation tool is administered both before students start any teaching in Aboriginal health and at the completion of their course.

Pre- and post-evaluation surveys will be conducted with the student cohort. The results of these two surveys will be used to evaluate student perceptions of their knowledge and skills in the area of Aboriginal Health, and thus to evaluate the effectiveness of the Indigenous Health curricula in the Master of Nursing Science course.
