Best rural experience:
My TROHPIQ TREES Observership was one of the highlights of my first year of medicine – I fell in love with rural medicine and haven’t looked back since!

What would you like to say about getting involved in TROHPIQ?
If for whatever reason you decide not to get involved, I bet I could change your mind – 100% the best thing you could get involved in while at university!

What would you like to say about getting involved in TROHPIQ?
TROHPIQ is a massive club, encompassing members of more backgrounds, degrees and passions than one could count – but rather than getting lost in the crowd, it’s like automatic family 🙂

What are your favourite TROHPIQ experiences?
Experiencing life in Theodore through the TREES observership was my most enjoyable experience. It was fantastic to see and assist in rural medicine first-hand. The community was so welcoming- I got a real taste of rural life from attending the trivia nights to visiting a nearby cattle property. It was a lot of fun! The networking nights and skills days that TROHPIQ ran were fantastic to mingle with new people whilst having a good time learning from skilled professionals.
