Thinking about working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander peoples? Consider taking a work placement in an
Aboriginal Medical Service. It’s a life changing experience
that offers invaluable clinical experience in a culturally
diverse setting. Training posts are available to medical
students, GP registrars and medical trainers, from rural
areas to inner and outer metropolitan.
Easy, no. Exciting, yes. There are more health issues to deal with in rural practice.
You can make a big difference, helping in your community's preventative health.
You'll have better ongoing input into your patient's life too, such as providing health
support from the cradle to the grave. Rural communities offer great lifestyles.
Plus there are great financial rewards for staying long term.
