About us

Students of Rural Health Aotearoa (SoRHA) is the one voice to connect, inform and support Kiwis considering a career in rural health or those already on the rural careers pathway. SoRHA represents the future of rural health in New Zealand and is the only multidisciplinary student health network, bringing together people studying medicine, nursing and allied health and encouraging them to pursue rural health careers.

SoRHA aims to:

  • Provide a voice for students who are interested in improving health outcomes for all rural and remote New Zealanders.
  • Promote rural health careers and encourage students who are interested in practising in rural health care.
