The team behind Going Rural Health are committed in supporting students
We have a number of educational opportunities to support you in completing your rural clinical placement:
The Cultural Competency in Aboriginal Health is a full day training delivered in person at a number of locations.
Each location offers a unique experience as local Aboriginal facilitators take you through a local history, local country specific ways and areas of cultural significance. You will learn about the health challenges that our local Indigenous communities face, and the challenges they face navigating our health care system.
The day enables participants to increase their skills and knowledge to work with Aboriginal people and communities in a more culturally appropriate and effective way. In addition participants will also gain a deeper understanding of Aboriginal culture, health and the challenges and barriers to health equality.
There are a range of resources students can tap into to begin their transition to practice and often the first thought is, how do I become a registered health professional?
The registration process can take some time, particularly during those periods when many students are graduating so if you are graduating then you must apply to AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) up to 6 weeks prior to your graduation.
Please see the AHPRA website for further details:
