General Practitioners working in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCOS) across Victoria are highly skilled and valued members of their multidisciplinary teams.
Aboriginal health provides a challenging and rewarding career unmatched in other general practice settings. GPs are immersed within local Aboriginal culture and undertake complex medicine. They manage a wide range of clinical presentations including:
Supporting GPs are teams of nurses, Aboriginal health workers, medical receptionists, practice managers, and a diverse range of allied health workers from nutritionists, alcohol and other drug counsellors.
In addition to their medical clinics, ACCOS are holistic organisations offering a range of programs and services to support the social and emotional wellbeing of Victorian Aboriginal individuals, families and communities.
