Abstract

• The Australian medical education system is at a critical juncture in relation to what and how it delivers for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. • Since 2004, three key organisations concerned with medical education have worked to provide a toolkit for implementation of sustainable reform within medical schools. • The aim is a medical workforce trained in Indigenous health, and more Aboriginal and Torres-Strait Islander doctors, leading to better health for Australia's Indigenous peoples.
