Call for applications for appointment to the State and Territory Boards of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.

The Health Profession Boards’ primary role is to protect the public. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) manages the registration and notification handling processes for health practitioners and students across Australia.

State, territory and regional boards exercise their functions in the jurisdiction to provide an effective and timely local response to health practitioners and other persons.

Multiple vacancies have become available due to a number of fixed term appointments expiring in 2017.

More information about the roles, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found on each of the Board websites below:

To be eligible for appointment as a practitioner member, you must hold current registration in the profession and be from the state or territory specified above.

Board appointments are made by the respective Minister for Health under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory. Appointments are for up to three years, with eligibility for reappointment.
