Allied Health in Outback Schools Program
University-student-run health hubs at primary schools in far west New South Wales are beginning to fill gaps in allied health services for rural children.
ABC reporter Sofie Wainwright caught up with BHUDRH Speech Pathology students working with infant school children in the School Hubs.
Amy Vickers is an undergraduate speech pathology student at the University of Sydney, and is one of the first students to undertake a placement at the health hubs.
"We've got this big space we've been given to utilise and it's kind of up to us ... how we use it," Ms Vickers said.
"I think that has really helped us develop our skills and move a little bit closer towards being graduates and working in the field."
