Course Description

Skilled Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers are in great demand. More Indigenous professionals are needed in the health industry to work within their communities and provide holistic healthcare frameworks.
This course also aims to empower you to become a role model for positive change in Indigenous health. You will learn how to achieve this through the application of Indigenous knowledge, primary healthcare, health promotion, community development concepts and practice, and project development, implementation and evaluation.
If you are already working in a health related position, this course will increase your knowledge and skills to perform more effectively. You can learn the skills required to provide an alternative, inclusive approach to health management that acknowledges Indigenous healing practices.
Graduates may qualify for entry into a bachelor degree with honours and some graduate certificates, graduate diplomas and master degrees.
