Call for applications to the NT/SA/WA Regional Board of the Psychology Board of Australia.

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme regulates more than 670,000 registered health practitioners and over 150,000 registered students across 14 health professions. It also accredits over 740 approved programs of study delivered by over 330 education providers.

The Psychology Board of Australia’s primary role is to protect the public particularly through setting standards, codes and guidelines to guide the practice of psychology. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) manages the registration and notification handling processes for health practitioners and students across Australia.

Applications are now sought for community and practitioner members who reside in the Northern Territory to fill vacancies on the NT/SA/WA Regional Board of the Psychology Board of Australia.

The National Scheme has a commitment to increasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ leadership and voices. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are strongly encouraged to apply, as are people from rural or regional areas in Australia.

Appointments are made by the Northern Territory 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.

More information about the roles, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found in the information guide and application form below.
