An Aussie STEM Stars book
Ajay’s story starts with his grandparents who were poor Indian cotton farmers from the lowest caste in their country. They persuaded their village to send one child to high school. Ajay’s father was selected, and went on to become a surgeon, returning to his village where he built and ran a hospital.
Inspired by his father’s selfless work, Ajay became a doctor, specialising in women’s health where he saw the worst kind of neglect. He is dedicated to improving women’s health through training and educating medical staff, especially in the poorest regions.
Professor Ajay Rane OAM has received the highest accolades and holds senior positions at James Cook University and Townsville University Hospital.
