Ever wondered what’s it’s like to train in an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS)?
Registrars who have undertaken an ACCHS placement as part of their training say there are many reasons why they would recommend it to others:
- Opportunity to experience types of medicine that registrars may not normally get exposure i.e. management of complex chronic conditions, etc.
- ACCHS placements are generally salaried positions which enable flexibility in consultation times and number of patients seen.
- An ACCHS placement provides a unique opportunity to explore & understand another culture.
