Our aim is to be a hub for innovative health research, education and workforce development in the Northern Territory. All activities are driven by our values which focus on long-term and short-term needs of the NT community.
Flinders NT delivers the Northern Territory Medical Program (NTMP), provides student placement and workforce capacity support through the Remote and Rural Interprofessional Placement Learning (RIPPL NT). Another key team is the Flinders NT Regional Training Hub, who in collaboration with stakeholders, is tasked to further develop capacity for NT medical specialist and rural generalist training thereby addressing workforce need. Flinders NT also encompasses the Centre for Remote Health which provides workforce development through postgraduate education (Remote Health Practice program), cultural awareness and other training and undertakes research, and the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health which focuses on capacity development of Indigenous leadership and the health workforce.
Flinders NT acknowledges that our sites across the Northern Territory are situated on Larrakia land (Darwin), Yolngu land (Nhulunbuy), Jawoyn land (Katherine), Warumungu land (Tennant Creek) and Arrernte land (Alice Springs). We are committed to working together with Indigenous people from across the NT to care for our shared future.
