Abstract

Introduction: Incongruence between the formal, informal and hidden curricula of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health education is a barrier to student learning and preparedness for delivering effective and culturally-safe healthcare to Aboriginal people. We investigated the impact of student and registrar immersion experiences in an urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary healthcare service, where greater alignmentbetween the formal, informal and hidden curricula is evident.
