Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians experience the poorest health status in the world on some indicators, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and renal disease.

Aboriginal Health training can be undertaken through an Extended Skill, Advanced Specialised Training, or Advanced Rural Skills Training.

In an Aboriginal Health placement, you will:

  • have access to Cultural Mentors and work in a team environment with supervisors, nursing staff and Aboriginal Health workers;
  • learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and health, and how this applies in a general practice setting; and
  • develop knowledge and skills in areas such as public health, infectious disease, and environmental health.

GPEx also offers roving registrar positions, where registrars travel to rural and remote locations across South Australia on a fly-in fly-out basis to provide outreach services to Aboriginal communities.

“The roving registrar job has provided me with so many opportunities, and being able to go out onto the community lands is such a unique experience. You get to go and work in the school or at the footy grounds and really take the opportunity to engage with people’s health anywhere, which is very different from medicine in the city.”

– Dr Laura Sharley, GP Registrar, RACGP
