The University’s inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2011–2013 was expressly aimed at developing both institutional knowledge and the fundamental processes that support Indigenous development and contribute to Indigenous wellbeing. RAP2 focused on a range of strategies and initiatives to support Faculties and Graduate Schools to achieve their own reconciliation outcomes as appropriate to their particular contexts.

In 2018 the University launched RAP3 with a focus on the key areas of Partnerships, Cultural Recognition, Student Recruitment and Retention, Staff Employment, Teaching and Learning Strategies, Research.

The Indigenous Development Team within the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences (MDHS) has successfully led a range of projects to deliver on our RAP commitments and are now seeking an Indigenous Development Project Officer to join the team.

Under the direction of the Indigenous Development Manager, the Indigenous Development Project Officer will assist with the planning, coordination and implementation of key projects and initiatives as part of the Faculty’s ongoing strategic response to RAP3. Projects accompanying the work may include the development of an MDHS Indigenous Graduate Pathway and strategies to share the Faculty’s Indigenous Development work.
