Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) is a Federally-funded not-for-profit programme offering health professionals opportunities to undertake short-term paid placements (3 weeks – 12 weeks) in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Northern Territory. To be considered you will need to meet the minimum credentialing criteria for one of the following craft groups (including already having the right to work in Australia): General Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Dentist, Dental Therapist, Dental Assistant and Audiologist.

You will be supported throughout your journey – free eLearning modules, cultural and clinical orientation to prepare you for your placement, travel and accommodation is arranged by RAHC and our teams in Canberra, Darwin and Alice Springs are on hand to assist you as required. In short, you just need to do what you do best and focus on delivering high-quality primary healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in the Territory.

Help the world's oldest living culture overcome the world's newest health challenge.

COVID-19 has created a critical workforce shortfall in remote Indigenous communities across Australia. Under the new Remote ACCHS Workforce Response (RAWR) programme, we can now offer General Practitioners and Registered Nurses the opportunity to work in remote Aboriginal Community-Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) in all states and territories across Australia.
