Abstract

Over 65% of all James Cook University (JCU) medical graduates practise outside of major cities (compared to 20% of all Australian clinicians), including 5% who choose to practice in remote northern Australian towns such as Mount Isa, Darwin, and Palm and Thursday Islands. Many remote towns have high proportional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. Little is known about the challenges and pressures for Australian doctors practising in remote locations; including community expectations around advocacy and leadership roles for graduates from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander cultures.
