MEDICAL students in Mildura are encouraging the next generation of doctors to consider a career in the country while raising money for a vital service to the Sunraysia region.

The Monash Rural Health students are part of the WILDFIRE Rural and Indigenous Health Club, which promotes rural practise, raises awareness of rural issues and welcomes new students to the school.

While third-year student  Tanzina Kazi, of Mildura, said she was fortunate to return to her home town to study, fellow students Sam Burrell, Caitlin Smart and Bayleigh Curran, originally from Queensland, Camperdown and Ballarat respectively, chose to study in Mildura for the opportunities and lifestyle it provided.
