We offer the following opportunities to be part of the Allied Health Service-Learning Team based in Mount Isa. These positions provide an exciting opportunity to influence the future generations of the health workforce and rural and remote health policy:

WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH IN THE ROLE
As an integral part of our dynamic and innovative team, you will facilitate service-learning programs in collaboration with local community-based organisations. With a mission to lead excellence in remote, rural and Indigenous Health, you will provide clinical supervision to undergraduate Occupational Therapy students, engage with local stakeholders, and support inter-professional learning in a remote context. Based in North Western Qld, you will be required to travel to remote communities and work in non clinical environments such as day-cares, schools and aged care facilities and communicate sensitively and effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Service learning is an innovative approach to remote service provision and workforce development. It delivers student-assisted, periodic, interprofessional services for adults and children in areas of high or unmet need as identified by service providers and community.

Your ability to engage, influence and collaborate effectively across organizations, professions and regions will see you improve access to occupational therapy services and contribute to the centre’s primary goal to improve the health of rural and remote populations.
This is an incredible opportunity for someone who wants to move away from a traditional clinical role, work with Indigenous people, experience rural QLD and be fully supported to further your career through academic endeavours such as a postgrad, masters, or PhD.
