The Flinders Northern Territory Regional Training Hub (Flinders NT RTH) was created to further develop medical specialist and rural generalist training capacity through effective collaboration with local and national stakeholders, thereby addressing medical workforce needs in the Northern Territory. We are currently working with relevant colleges, health services and training providers to identify and prioritise the areas of need and in turn, aim to build well-coordinated, and well supported, vocational training pathways in the NT.
Regional Training Hubs were formed by the Commonwealth Department of Health 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 regional training hubs across rural Australia, including one in the Northern Territory, with sites in Darwin and Alice Springs.

We work closely with various stakeholders to expand, align and integrate specialist and generalist medical education, supervision and training capacity in the Territory.
