Last week our cultural mentors from across NSW & ACT got together for a workshop in Sydney. The cultural mentors, who help GP registrars who are training in Aboriginal health, are local Elders and staff of Aboriginal community controlled health services.
It was a great workshop with inspirational speakers including Professor Bob Morgan, Professor Bronwyn Carlson, Jeff McMullen AM, Donna Murray, Marg Cranney and Dr Joel Wenitong. Photos from the event are available in the GP Synergy image gallery.
“I would definitely recommend working in an Aboriginal medical service! You get great support, it’s welcoming and everyone is prepared to teach and take you along for the ride.”
