It’s our aim to build a strong, country allied health workforce – and to do this, we want passionate, inspiring people committed to learning and growing in their chosen field.

To support you to be the best clinician you can be, you’ll be working with a team that represent some of the best in their field. The hands-on approach we offer will provide insight into a unique and exciting career path, only experienced when you work in country healthcare.

The organisation you start your career with can shape the future of your working life, which is why the team around you and the clinical support and knowledge they provide is crucial!

"Delivering heath services in rural areas can be challenging, but our clinicians are passionate and excited to come to work. I've learnt from clinical leaders who are experienced, knowledgeable and supportive." – Ella, Occupational Therapist

We have career pathways for occupational therapists, speech pathologists, positive behaviour support, social workers, mental health social workers and provisional psychologists.
