RAHC fills another 500 health professional placements in remote NT

Date posted: 29 March 2012

Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) has announced that it has filled another 500 short-term health professional placements in remote Indigenous communities across the Northern Territory (NT) this financial year as part of its efforts to close the gap in Indigenous health outcomes.

I would like to express my appreciation and congratulations to the many outstanding health professionals who have been a part of this important milestone and continue to work to help close the gap,' said RAHC Chairman, Dr Tony Austin.

RAHC was established in late 2008 to recruit urban-based health professionals, general practitioners (GPs), registered nurses/midwives, oral health and allied health professionals to provide primary health care on short-term, paid placements in remote Indigenous communities in the NT.

Urban-based health professionals who want to make a difference are encouraged to register their interest on the RAHC website. They are also invited to complete RAHC's free online clinical e-learning modules in remote and Indigenous health and acquire CPD points.
