Billy completed his training in 2019. While training, Billy was offered a position at BRAMS as an AHW student. After completing his training, he was then employed as a qualified AHW.
Over the past 2 years, Billy has proven to be a dedicated and caring AHW. He has showed great passion for helping others, and trying to make a difference in the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Billy was offered a position as the Acting Practice Team Leader in January of this year, and then in April took on that role permanently.
Since his transition to the Team Leader role, Billy has been a great role model for the AHW students, as well as his AHW colleagues.

In his own words….

My name is Billy Martin, I am a proud Yamitji, Whadjuk man.

I have worked at BRAMS for 3 years now and have been Clinic Coordinator/ Team leader for the past 6 months.

I started working in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Primary Health in 2019 when I got the opportunity to enrol in the Cert IV in Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Primary Health course at KAMS.

During my studies I was offered a traineeship at BRAMS, and upon my graduation was given a full-time job as a Health Worker in the clinic.

In my time at BRAMS I have been involved in sexual health programs, chronic disease clinics, the men’s clinic and outreach clinics such as Clontarf Football academy and Milliya Rumurra.

My real passion is being in the clinic. I enjoy meeting new people from my community and interacting with patients that are well known to me.

The best part about working at BRAMS is that not one day is the same. I feel that my strengths are my kindness and compassion, as well as my ability to build good relationships and trust with my patients.
