Refugee Health Fellows Program
There are three paediatric fellows based at the Royal Children’s Hospital, two adult health fellows at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and a refugee health fellow at Monash Health. Their work includes education, secondary consultations, support and referral information to primary care providers, assistance with management of urgent health issues in airport arrivals.
The Refugee Health Fellows program exists to assist health care providers, and fellows are available by telephone and can often arrange to see you in your practice. Fellows can offer assistance with diagnosis and management and can provide information on referral pathways for refugee and asylum seeker clients. They also provide education sessions as requested.
