Established in 1978, Broome Regional Aboriginal Medical Service (BRAMS) was the first remote Aboriginal Medical Service in Western Australia. Committed to the core principles of Aboriginal self-determination, access, equity, empowerment and reconciliation, they are an Aboriginal community-owned and controlled health service that provides holistic, culturally appropriate curative services and integrated preventative programs.
With a robust governance structure and comprehensive strategic plan, BRAMS continues to grow and expand their offerings to ensure they can achieve their vision of Healthy People, Strong Communities, and Bright Futures.
For more information about BRAMS and the valuable service they provide, check out their website here.
Due to ongoing growth, BRAMS has multiple short-term and long-term opportunities for General Practitioners to join their team in Broome, with the flexibility to work on either a full-time or part-time basis.
These roles can be highly varied but at their core are about working as part of a collaborative team to deliver comprehensive primary health care services to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clients and their families.
BRAMS is a fantastic, well supported, fun and dynamic place to work.
They pride themselves on delivering quality evidence-based clinical care in a holistic and culturally sensitive way, both in the clinic and through various outreach programmes. They have GP Registrars of all stages, Aboriginal Health Workers, Nursing and Medical students and encourage regular teaching, education sessions and training.
This job would suit a passionate and dedicated GP interested in having a portfolio style career, who cares about people, is a team player, and desires to make a difference, however big or small that may be.
Previous experience in rural and remote areas and working within an ACCHO is not essential. A hospital is just down the road. The clinic is friendly and supportive with a wonderful team environment, making it an excellent place for applicants who have just completed their vocational training to apply.
Plus, you get to live in Broome, get an hour for lunch, finish at 16:30 every day and be well re-numerated. Time for a change? Give the Senior Medical Officer, Dr Jonathan Blundell, a call on (08) 9192 1338 to chat about the role and see if he can’t tempt you to BRAMS!

However, there's a lot more to Broome than just tourism – with strong population growth and significant investment in infrastructure, it's quickly becoming a destination of choice for families and individuals who want to take advantage of the area's welcoming and laid-back lifestyle whilst enjoying all of the amenities and facilities of a modern town.
