In 2011, an inaugural group of 24 students enrolled in first year of the medical program at its brand new, purpose-built building at Charles Darwin University campus.
The NTMP has an administration centre and teaching rooms at the Royal Darwin Hospital, as well as established teaching sites in Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy, Katherine and Tennant Creek.
The NTMP 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 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 sites in Australia.
The NTMP works closely with other Flinders NT initiatives including:
- The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health
- Centre for Remote Health
- Palmerston Super Clinic
- Flinders NT Regional Training Hub
- The University has a strategic commitment that Flinders NT activities will be undertaken in close collaboration with Charles Darwin University.
