Call for applications for appointment to the Registration and Notifications Committee
Podiatry Board of Australia
The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) regulates more than 800,000 registered health practitioners and over 180,000 registered students across 16 health professions.
The Podiatry Board of Australia (the Board) is seeking applications from suitably qualified and experienced registered podiatrists and podiatric surgeons for appointment to its Registration and Notifications Committee (the RNC) to assist the Board in its primary role of protecting the public.
The role of the RNC is to make decisions about individual registration and notification matters, based on the national policies and standards set by the Board. The Board has delegated the necessary powers to the RNC to enable it to carry out these functions.
The RNC has practitioner and community members. To ensure an appropriate balance of skills, knowledge and experience on the committee, the Board has decided to appoint an additional practitioner member to the RNC, preferably with experience in private podiatry practice.
Applications will be assessed by a selection advisory panel and the appointment will be made by the Board.
The appointment will be for a one-year term with eligibility for reappointment and is expected to commence by June 2023.
The National Scheme has an important role in ensuring the development of a culturally safe and respectful health workforce that is
responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples health and contributes to the elimination of racism in the provision of health services.
To achieve this, we have committed to increasing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leadership and voices on the Ahpra Board and warmly
invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples to apply.
If you are an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person and would like to talk about this opportunity further, please email email@example.com or call 07 3149 4789 and Patrick Murphy, Senior Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement Officer, will be in touch.
More information about the role, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found in the Terms of reference and Information guide.
