There are many benefits to undertaking part of your GP training in an Aboriginal health training post in an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS), including:
- a better understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health that can then be applied in an ACCHS or a mainstream general practice with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients
- being part of a team that delivers holistic health care
- understanding the disparities in Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal health status, and why it is important to close the gap.
You can hear GP registrars talk about their own experiences in this short video about training in an ACHHS.
