Moving Beyond the Front Line: A 20 year retrospective cohort study of career trajectories from the Indigenous Health Program at The University of Queensland.
This project examines critical success factors for enabling Indigenous leadership across the health system as demonstrated by alumni of the University of Queensland’s Indigenous Health Program (IHP). The study takes a strengths-based approach which privileges the narrative accounts of Indigenous health professionals who graduated from the IHP between 1994-2005. This multidisciplinary cohort of approximately 70 health professionals include CEOs of medical services, GPs, clinical specialists, senior policy advisors, program managers and senior academics. Foregrounding their testimony, thought and experience will illuminate our understanding of Indigenous health workforce leadership across the health system.
