About the program
A crucial focus for the RACGP is to develop the Australian Indigenous health workforce to assist in closing the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians’ and non-Indigenous Australians’ health outcomes.
As part of this commitment, RACGP Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health developed the Yagila Wadamba Program (meaning ‘learn to heal’), an annual support program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander GP Registrars.
The program concentrates on exam preparation and other key areas of GP training. Participants are able to network with their peers in a friendly and welcoming environment, while also taking advantage of the opportunity to hear and learn from medical educators and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander GP Fellows.
Attendees are supported to not only perform at their best in the Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) and Key Feature Problem (KFP) exams, but to thrive throughout their GP training journey.
Please note places are limited, and wherever possible, we aim to accommodate all eligible candidates for this program.
