Specialist Trainee Support Program, Trainee Workshop

Date Friday 24 March 2023
About the event

AIDA is delighted to invite all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander non-GP specialists in training to register for the second face to face workshop! Early plans are that this will be a research masterclass – subject to change.

Held on the Country of the Awabakal People, Newcastle the workshop will provide you with culturally safe opportunity to connect with your peers and engage in education in research and professional development to support your success on your training journey.

The 1.5 day workshop is fully funded by the Commonwealth and consortium of non-GP specialty colleges. All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander doctors in training (non-GP) are welcome including AIDA members and non-members.

Your family

We welcome your family to join us and participate in cultural activities and meals. As our funding is limited to trainees, a subsidy will apply for guests’ meals and any accommodation upgrades. Costs will be confirmed soon as plans are finalised. If costs are a barrier to your attendance, please let us know as we will work on a solution with you!


Please note that AIDA’s funding will not cover the following costs which participants will be asked to cover:

Alcoholic beverages or other incidental costs.

Room upgrades – rooms will accommodate 2 people

Meals for guests or family members – as above, additional costs will apply.
