Call for applications for appointment to the Chinese Medicine Board list of approved persons for appointment to panels, or the Registration and Notifications Committee.

The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (the Board) seeks applications for appointment to either the list of approved persons for appointment to health panels, performance and professional standards hearings panels (practitoners only) and/or the Registration and Notifications Committee (practitioners and community members) from:

  • qualified registered Chinese Medicine practitioners registered in the division of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and/or Chinese herbal dispensing;
  • community members.

While applicants may apply for both vacancies, successful candidates will only be appointed to either the Committee or the list of approved persons for appointment to panels in order to avoid any potential conflicts. Applications are being accepted from all jurisdictions.

List of approved persons:

Under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (National Law) a Board convenes health panels and performance and professional standards panels when required to hold hearings into specific health, performance or conduct matters for individual registered health professionals. Such panels consist of members chosen from a Board’s list of approved persons.

The Board is seeking registered practitioners with five (5) years practice experience for the list of approved persons who reside in all states and territories (except NSW*).

*Recruitment for panel members is in accordance with s183(2) of the National Law, to the extent practicable, will exclude individuals whose residence or principal place of practice is in a co-regulatory jurisdiction (i.e. NSW).

Registration and Notifications Committee:

The Board is also seeking applications from registered practitioners and community members for appointment to the Board’s Registration and Notifications committee.

Registered health practitioner applicants must possess at least five (5) years clinical experience and a minimum qualification of a Bachelor Degree of Chinese Medicine. It is preferred that applicants are registered under two of the three divisions of Chinese Medicine registration.

Community members must have the ability to analyse/synthesise and read large volumes of information as well as a strong understanding of the health regulation scheme.

For more information on the Registration and Notifications Committee visit here.

All appointments are made by the Board under the National Law and your application will be assessed by a Selection Advisory Panel. Appointments are for up to three years, with eligibility for re-appointment, and are expected to commence in late 2015.
