Flinders Northern Territory Regional Training Hub

Presenting opportunities for medical graduates to live, study, train and work in the NT

Regional training hubs have been created to address medical workforce misdistribution through contributing to a ‘rural medical training pipeline’ that encompasses medical students, pre-vocational graduates, vocational trainees and, finally, rural generalist GPs and medical specialists. There are 26 new regional training hubs across rural Australia, including one in the Northern Territory, with sites in Darwin and Alice Springs.

Flinders NT Regional Training Hub (Flinders NT RTH) will identify medical students, graduates and Junior Medical Officers who want to continue their medical training and work in the Territory and facilitate them into the postgraduate workforce in the NT.

Flinders NT RTH will work closely with key stakeholders to expand, co-ordinate and integrate specialist and generalist medical education, supervision and training capacity in the Territory.

Stakeholders include:

  • Local health service providers, in particular Top End Health Service (TEHS) and Central Australia Health Service (CAHS)
  • Medical Colleges including GP Colleges 
  • NT General Practice Education (NTGPE) 
  • The Medical Education and Training Centre (METC) 
  • Northern Territory PHN (NT PHN) 
  • Australian Medical Association NT (AMA NT) 
  • Aboriginal Medical Services (AMS) across the NT including Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance of the NT (AMSANT)
  • Training providers 

We can help with

  • Providing information and guidance on rural medicine training pathway options in the NT
  • Providing mentoring and individual support to medical students, Junior Medical Officers and trainee registrars.
  • Supporting and mentoring clinical supervisors and identifying training posts/ health services across all disciplines to enhance accredited supervision capacity.
  • Assisting with organising clinical supervision training. Supervisor Professional Development is part of Flinders NT’s commitment to clinical health supervisors in the Northern Territory 

Who we are

We have a team of professional administrative and academic staff across the NT here to provide support and help strengthen the integrated regional training pipeline.
