Are you in your final year of an approved program of study to become an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health practitioner?
Smooth the transition from study to work by applying online now for registration.
Registering with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia
Before you can start practising or using the protected tile ‘Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health practitioner’, you must be registered with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia (the National Board). We recommend that you apply for registration four to six weeks before you’re due to finish your course.
To register as a new graduate, you must meet the following Registration standards:
These set the minimum requirements for registration and are an important way the AHPRA and the National Board protects the public.
How to apply online
There are four simple steps to applying online:
1. Set up your account with AHPRA. To do this, you’ll need a unique and personal email address only you can access.
Once set up, you can save your application and resume as required.
2. Complete the application form for registration with the National Board.
3. Upload your supporting documents.
4. Pay any required fees.
What happens next?
We will assess your application and may contact you if we require further information. Once your education provider has advised us that you are eligible to graduate, we’ll finalise your application and will contact you to confirm that registration has been granted.
Once registered, your name will be published on the national register of practitioners, and you can start work!
