Nicheportal.org is an initiative of the Australian specialist medical colleges of Australia which provide training and support to medical specialists.
Nicheportal provides a central information point for educational resources for medical specialists who care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and patients. It aims to ensure that these health and cultural learning resources meet the aims and standards of the Committee of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Medical Specialist Framework.
Nicheportal seeks to encourage a multi-disciplinary approach to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health care through easier access to learning activities, engagement with other professionals and the formation of networks and communities of practice.
The portal is designed to assist the following audiences:
- Medical Colleges including Fellows, affiliates, trainees, international medical graduates (college program) and college staff
- Medical Practitioners including hospital interns, nurses, allied health staff and international medical graduates (area of need)
- University including medical students and medical researchers.
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners is a partner of Nicheportal.org, contributing resources and activities to the portal. Public access is available to unrestricted activities and resources.
