Audiologist credentialing criteria
As a RAHC Audiologist, you will work with a supportive team to deliver healthcare in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Northern Territory (NT). You don't have to give up your regular job to work with RAHC, as RAHC placements work around your other responsibilities.
To be considered for a placement with RAHC, our Audiologists must meet a minimum level of criteria, as outlined below.
- Masters of Audiology or equivalent.
- Current membership to Audiology Australia.
- Minimum of 2 years relevant clinical experience, including one year of paediatric clinical experience.
- Minimum of 250 hours of relevant clinical experience in the last 12 months.
- Evidence of 20 hours of relevant Continuous Professional Development (CPD) within the past 12 months, compliant with Audiology Australia CPD guidelines requirements. A current Audiology Australia Accredited Audiologist Certificate is the recommended evidence for verification (or equivalent certificate from an Australian approved audiological professional body).
- Evidence of current Basic Life Support (BLS) with evidence of a practical component.
- Evidence of current professional indemnity insurance.
- Two professional references from Audiologists who can attest to the applicant's recent clinical experience, including one from a Senior Audiologist or Hearing Services Manager.
Remote or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders health experience is welcomed but not essential.
If you are an urban-based HP who meets the eligibility requirements and would like to get involved, now is the time to start.
Please note - applying with RAHC does not mean you will be credentialed nor offered placements. Your application allows RAHC to credential you, so when successful we can contact health services and identify appropriate placements that suit your skills, experience and availability.
