Are you curious about what a career in Aboriginal health is really like?

Posted on 15th Jun 2020

Join us for a webinar with WAGPET medical educator Dr Kim Isaacs and local GP Dr Sarah Woodland on Aboriginal health in the Kimberley. Find out if Aboriginal health is the specialty for you, with a specific focus working in the Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS) sector. You'll hear their real-life experiences and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

We look forward to discussing all things Aboriginal health with you next Wednesday.

Join us on Wednesday, 17 June at 6pm. Contact us at marketing@wagpet.com.au for webinar link details.

If you're interested in undertaking a placement at a AMS, please contact Taylor O'Dea on 08 9473 8200 or taylor.odea@wagpet.com.au.

About Aboriginal health

General practice is at the frontline of community health. GPs who specialise in Aboriginal health provide a deeper level of care to WA communities.

At WAGPET, we offer a training program in a supportive and culturally-safe environment for the community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander registrars.

We work closely with cultural mentors who help support GP registrars in providing safe healthcare to our communities. We have also altered our training program to ensure our registrars are provided with the information they need to be a culturally-safe GP.

If you are passionate about Aboriginal health and want to provide a deeper level of care to our communities, you can specialise in Aboriginal health with us. This means you will have the opportunity to:

  • work on the frontline of closing the gap
  • provide continuity of care to remote communities who need it most
  • work together in a multidisciplinary team towards permanent health solutions.
