Specialist Certificate in Empowering Health in Aboriginal Communities

Where will this take me?


The course is designed to develop an Aboriginal health workforce and provide entry level opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to engage in tertiary education. The course will provide an opportunity to advance your skills and expertise in and gain formal recognition for your work in Aboriginal health and community development. It has been designed for those who work in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community and health-related fields as Aboriginal health workers, health service managers, practitioners, consumer advocacy and/or policy group roles.
