Partnering for good health and wellbeing for Indigenous Australians

A collaboration agreement for partnering for good health and wellbeing for Indigenous Australians was signed yesterday.  The collaboration between the Australian Government, the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) aims to close the gap in health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

Professor Michael Cleary PSM, President of the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators (RACMA) said, “RACMA welcomes this Partnering Agreement and recognises that it will become an important initiative in achieving the national Closing the Gap targets”. 

As part of RACMA’s Fellowship program, RACMA offers mandatory Indigenous health training to all candidates.  RACMA’s faculty lead for Indigenous health, Dr Tony Austin AM, said, “RACMA is actively encouraging Indigenous doctors to undertake RACMA professional leadership training and looks forward to seeing Indigenous doctors achieve College Fellowship”
