Remote Health Placements
Open up your experience
When you join RAHC, you will work in remote and very remote NT Aboriginal communities with constant support from experienced remote health specialists. We’re there for you so you can focus on delivering quality healthcare where it's needed.
From your first placement and onwards, we’ll support you with clinical and cultural training.
RAHC partners with community-controlled organisations in remote NT communities to understand their healthcare needs and how we can help to meet them.
You will contribute to closing the gap on health outcomes for Aboriginal communities in a way that’s culturally and locally responsive.
Process of becoming a RAHC health professional
Who should apply
We’re looking for GPs, Registered Nurses, oral health professionals and Audiologists who are open to placements of 3 to 12 weeks. You don’t need remote working experience to apply, but you do need to meet minimum eligibility requirements.
Help to transition
Before your first placement with RAHC, you will have valuable face-to-face cultural training before you start. Our cultural advisor will assist and mentor you to transition to working on Country.
If your join as a GP or Registered Nurse, you will also have Remote Educator (RE) support on your first placement.
REs help with clinical and cultural transition to working and living remote.
Support while remote
With RAHC’s Indigenous leadership and networks, you will build connections with communities to respond to needs on the ground.
We’ll also support you to continue your remote health and cultural education with online learning access.
Your travel and accommodation will be taken care of. Plus, all RAHC health professionals have 24/7 support from our teams in Darwin, Canberra and Alice Springs.
Know the process
RAHC recruits and deploys qualified health professionals to help address critical short-term workforce shortages in remote Aboriginal communities.
You can work as a casual employee or a contractor.
