The gamadji nanggit Scholarship
The gamadji nanggit Scholarship (meaning – ‘emerging leader’) is designed to support the next generation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander early career psychiatrists and trainees to increase their medical leadership skills.
Made possible by a generous donation received from Dr Alagappa Arumugam AM FRANZCP and Dr Banu Arumugam, this scholarship is awarded to an early career RANZCP Fellow or trainee to undertake an endorsed external leadership, management or career development training opportunity.
