The Northern Territory Medical Program (NTMP) is part of the Flinders NT Academic unit of Flinders University's School of Medicine. We provide training to Flinders University and James Cook University medical students and coordinate placement opportunities and support for Allied Health students and interstate medical students. In 2011, an inaugural group of twenty four students enrolled in Year 1 of the NT Medical Program at it's brand new, purpose-built building at Charles Darwin University campus in Darwin. NTMP also has an administration centre and teaching rooms at the Royal Darwin Hospital.
The Northern Territory Remote Clinical School (NTRCS), with sites in Alice Springs, Katherine and Nhulunbuy, is part of the NT Medical Program. This initiative commenced in 2005 and aims to give students the opportunity to undertake training in rural environments. The program also offers support to health professionals working in these remote teaching locations.
The Northern Territory Medical Program prides itself on the quality of education provided to students and the support offered through the Program to the medical and health workforce across the Northern Territory. Curriculum delivery is innovative using the latest technologies to ensure quality presentation in a variety of settings - from Flinders University in suburban Adelaide to Nhulunbuy, one of the most remote medical program campuses in Australia.
The NT Medical Program works closely with other important Flinders NT initiatives including the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health in Alice Springs, and the University's participation in academic leadership and services at the Palmerston Super Clinic. Flinders University has a strategic commitment that Flinders NT activities will be undertaken in close collaboration with Charles Darwin University (CDU).
