Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner Awards

2018 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
Health Practitioner Awards

“Recognising Dedication and Excellence”

 

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner (ATSIHP) Excellence Awards recognise and reward members of this important profession for their dedication and vital work that they do in their communities. ATSIHPs are essential health care professionals who play a unique role in providing primary health care, often in challenging circumstances and locations, while bridging the gap between western medicine and traditional ways.

These awards are managed by the Northern Territory Department of Health and are delivered in partnership with United Voice, the Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance Northern Territory and the Rotary Club of Darwin Sunrise. Our ability to deliver these awards is made possible by the significant ongoing support provided by the Australian Government Department of Health as the major sponsor of these awards.

The nominations for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practitioner Excellence Awards are open from Tuesday 12 June to Friday 20 July 2018.

There are four categories that are open for nominees:

  • Remote
  • Urban
  • Specialist
  • New Practitioner.

Prize money and a certificate of achievement are presented to the winners of each category in recognition of their achievement. The ‘Legend’ is chosen from the Remote, Urban and Specialist category winners and awarded an additional bursary, a certificate of achievement, a personal trophy and a perpetual trophy.
