JCU provides registrars with a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health educational activities including:
Cultural Awareness Module
RACGP or ACRRM online modules must be satisfactorily completed within the first two months of commencing the term.
Cultural Awareness Workshops
Cultural awareness workshops are delivered locally within the JCU regions by our Cultural Educator.
‘Half-Day Release’ Education Sessions
Local medical educators conduct regular education sessions throughout the year. Many of these incorporate clinical applications to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health settings to extend Registrar knowledge and understanding.
Online Learning Resources
Registrars have access to a number of online learning resources in MyGMT. These resources include interactive and strengths-based clinical case studies in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
Cultural Mentoring in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Services
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural mentors support registrars during their training in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services. They provide advice on a day to day basis on cultural and other matters in accordance with individual needs. They also work with cultural educators to formulate and deliver local cultural awareness and capability training.
