The HFTC is a fun and interactive experience where you will participate in a clinical, cultural, educational, and interprofessional major event where you will meet and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from across Australia.
The best health outcomes for the many and increasing number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with complex or chronic healthcare needs often depends on effective teamwork and collaboration between various healthcare professionals with different skills and knowledge. The HFTC aims to develop this important capability prior to graduation in a way that is culturally safe, responsive, transformative, and fun.
The HFTC is an extracurricular competition for university students from the health and medical professions. It provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise in teamwork and collaboration as they develop a health care management plan in response to a complex Indigenous case study.
