Our rural and remote activities in the Central Australian Corridor
Flinders University is recognised for making a difference locally and globally in rural and remote health. We have a considerable presence in rural and remote communities throughout South Australia and the Northern Territory. This geographic footprint throughout the ‘Central Australian Corridor’ is a defining feature of the University, and our rural and remote academic programs and research positively impact some of the most under-served communities in Australia. The Discipline of Rural and Remote Health (encompassing Flinders NT and Flinders Rural Health SA) affects and engages rural and remote communities in a range of ways.
Where are we located?
Northern Territory: the College has an extensive presence across the NT, and in true Top End style, our activities are well spread out: there are 100 staff across our five locations in Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine, Nhulunbuy and Tennant Creek.
South Australia: Flinders University Rural Health SA facilitates high quality multidisciplinary health education and research across rural communities in South Australia. Our campuses are located in Mt. Gambier, Victor Harbor, Murray Bridge, the Barossa and Renmark, but we do also accommodate medical, nursing and allied health students on placement in some of the more remote regions of South Australia, including Coober Pedy, Roxby Downs and Ceduna.
