The Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health (UDRH) is based on the Charles Sturt University campuses in Wagga Wagga and Orange. The Three Rivers UDRH is a new alliance that brings together the unique geographical knowledge and expertise of CSU and its partners. The key activities of the UDRH are:

  • Fostering the development of future rural health capabilities by developing new multidisciplinary resources and training programs. 

The Senior Lecturer in Indigenous Health will be a key staff member in the Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health.
