The Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) and Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) are pleased to announce the appointment of Anthony Paulson into the interim General Manager position of Joint College Training Services Pty Ltd (JCTS), effective immediately.  

Anthony is a proud Aboriginal man; his people are saltwater people from the Worimi and Mununjali nations. He previously held senior management roles in an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS) and has extensive experience working respectfully with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.  

Throughout his career, Anthony has occupied senior roles with government and non-government organisations in rural and remote locations in New South Wales. In 2017, he joined GP Synergy as the Manager of the Aboriginal Cultural Education Unit, enjoying the role’s diversity and working with different stakeholders. He looks forward to working respectfully with the cultural educators, cultural mentors, college staff and other key stakeholders to continue the delivery of high-quality cultural education and mentoring for GP registrars. 

Anthony welcomes the opportunity to support the delivery of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Training strategic plan funding to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples and support growth in GP registrar numbers training in Aboriginal health training facilities. 

The JCTS Board will commence recruitment for an ongoing General Manager in early 2023.
