NTGPE Medical Educators Dr Olivia O'Donoghue and Dr Simone Raye have just returned from Hilo, Hawaii where they presented at Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress (PRIDoC) 2018.

PRIDoC is an indigenous space for indigenous physicians and students, researchers and health professionals from across the Pacific to gather around shared issues of well-being among the many indigenous communities throughout and around the Pacific. 

This year's theme, ‘Oi Ola Wai Honua, translates as “life is better while the earth has water” and reflects on the importance of caring for our resources.

Olivia and Simone's presentation focused on the barriers and enablers to progressing through and completing GP training for Indigenous doctors and the support IGPRN offer to assit them.
