The remote communities of Katherine, Alice Springs and Nhulunbuy support the efforts of the Northern Territory Medical Program (NTMP).
Particular attention is paid to ensure that the learning opportunities in these regions reflect the local cultural and environmental context of the different communities, their health and wellness, and health care delivery systems.
Clinical experiences in the NT provide students with significant exposure to tropical medicine and Indigenous health issues.
First and second year NTMP students begin their engagement with these remote communities through the Remote Health Experience and Regional Community Week.
Third year students can spend six months or more in a remote location. Fourth year students can elect to undertake some of their core rotations and electives in Alice Springs and Nhulunbuy.
