DoH announces salary support for 2023 Aboriginal Health placements


The Department of Health has announced all GP registrars who secure training positions in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services this year for 2023 placements will have their contracts honoured without change for 2023.

The AGPT Salary Support program provides funding for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services to host GP registrar placements.

This announcement confirms the level of support provided to training posts in 2023 through salary supported training placements will not be affected by any changes to the governance and administration of the AGPT Salary Support program.

Salary Support placements will continue to be supported through Aboriginal Health training provided by the GP colleges, including the training and education provided by the work of Cultural Educators and Cultural Mentors.
