The Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) was established in 2008 and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health under The Indigenous Australians’ Health Programme: Stronger Futures Northern Territory to “address persistent challenges to accessing primary healthcare services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait people in the Northern Territory”.
RAHC is a program designed to increase the pool of urban-based health professionals available for work in Indigenous communities by attracting, recruiting and orienting them and then providing ongoing support and training to successfully assist the health professional to make the transition to remote practice.
RAHC has a number of exciting opportunities for urban-based Audiologists to undertake short-term paid placements in remote, Indigenous communities in the Northern Territory. Placements are casual for short periods of three weeks to three months you to maintain your professional and personal obligations at home while participating in efforts to improve Indigenous health.
As an Audiologist with RAHC you will be well supported by our team. RAHC is funded to support travel for health professionals from the airport nearest to your home (within Australia or New Zealand) to the community or service where you will be working, and back home at the end of the placement. Accommodation is provided and will meet basic needs.
