The Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) is an Indigenous-focused health workforce specialist and partner. RAHC provides health services mostly in remote and very remote Northern Territory (NT) Aboriginal communities. 

As a RAHC Oral HP, you will work with a supportive team to deliver partner-informed healthcare. You don't have to give up your regular job to work with RAHC. Placements work around your other responsibilities.

To be considered for a placement with RAHC, our Oral Health Professionals (HPs) must meet a minimum level of criteria, as outlined below.

  • Bachelor of Dental Surgery or equivalent qualification, recognised by the Australian Dental Council (ACD).
  • Current unrestricted registration as a Dentist with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA).
  • Minimum of 2 years full-time post-graduate experience in a relevant clinical setting.
  • Minimum of 250 hours of relevant clinical experience in the past 12 months.
  • Current user licence for radiation.
  • Evidence of current certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with proof of a practical component.
  • Evidence of 20 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) complaint with ADC requirements within the past 12 months.
  • Evidence of current professional indemnity insurance.
  • Two professional referees who can attest to the applicant's recent clinical experience, including one reference from a Dentist.

If you are an urban-based Health Professional who meets the eligibility requirements and would like to get involved, now is the time to start.
