Aboriginal Medical Workforce Pathway

The Aboriginal Medical Workforce Recruitment pathway in NSW is about linking Aboriginal medical graduates with support during the transition from medical school to prevocational trainee.

If you are an Aboriginal medical graduate applying for a prevocational training position in NSW, you are eligible to apply for the Aboriginal Medical Workforce pathway in NSW.

The program aims to support your transition from medical graduate to becoming a prevocational trainee in any one of the fifteen prevocational training networks or a rural preferential hospital in NSW where you identify that you have support.
