General Practitioners


  • We’re Australia’s most dynamic and committed Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service
  • We’re engaging with health issues at a grass roots community level
  • We’re looking for GPs ready to rewrite the Aboriginal Health story

What we stand for 

With eight clinics and growing across East Arnhem Land, we’re providing health care services for over 6,000 Indigenous residents. Our Board of Directors represents communities across the region, ensuring every decision we make helps empower Yolngu people to take control of their lives and direct their own futures.

We’re connected by passion

We share a passion for the rich history of the Yolngu culture, and a commitment to ensure that the work we’re doing is instrumental in ensuring self-determination for Indigenous peoples. We’re a people place, where going above and beyond is in our nature. We’re not just offering jobs, we’re offering a way to shape Australia’s future. Do you share our passion?

We’d be nowhere without you

A core part of our success is our dedicated team of GPs.  We’re currently on the hunt for GPs to join the team in Ramingining. In short, our GPs are a critical in improving the standard of primary health care across our region. In a bit more detail you will be:

  • A quick thinker: ensuring timely intervention for acute medical problems, and managing and identifying chronic conditions.
  • A natural collaborator: working with Aboriginal Health Practitioners and other members of the clinic and community to ensure the best possible health services.
  • A leader: someone who can solve problems, look for opportunities and willingly participation in health promotion activities, health research and development.
  • An advocate: someone who will work with a variety of people in raising the profile of Indigenous Health issues.
