What’s your next medical career move in the NT?

Flinders University’s NT Regional Training Hub – in collaboration with Top End Regional Health Services – is welcoming medical students and junior doctors to showcase training, support and employment pathways at the NT Medical Career Expo 2024.

The Career Expo is being held in Darwin highlighting Flinders’ NT graduate training pathways and workforce opportunities based on its strong track record teaching and training in the Northern Territory (NT) for more than 27 years.

Flinders Professor Robyn Aitken, the Dean of Rural and Remote Health, says there is a shared vision for a thriving and dynamic medical workforce which delivers healthcare to all lands and communities of the NT.

“The Expo is an opportunity for medical students and prevocational doctors to learn more about training, support, and employment pathways in the NT.

“Many medical students and junior doctors haven’t decided what they plan to specialise in, what their next career move might be or even what options are available to them.

“This event will give them the opportunity to talk face to face with experts from up to 24 organisations to explore their career options as well as network with senior NT clinicians, medical specialist training colleges and local employment and training organisations.

“They will also have the opportunity to participate in interactive activities on the night such as suturing, ear & eye examinations, intubation, games or Rorschach tests,” she says.

The event will be held on Thursday 16 May evening kicking off at 5:30pm until 7:30pm and will be hosted by MC and comedian, Amy Hetherington.

It will have an interactive and dynamic format with no ‘formal’ presentations and instead exhibitors can showcase their organisation and areas of interest by providing a hands-on practical experience for attendees.

About 100 local students, junior doctors, and health service staff are expected to attend the event at Flinders Rural and Remote Health NT campus based at Charles Darwin University.

Representatives from 24 organisations including 12 of the medical speciality colleges including Australian College of Rural and Remote Health, The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Royal Australian College of Physicians, and Royal Australian College of Surgeons just to name a few.

Anyone wishing to attend can register via Eventbrite. Multiple prizes will be on offer including the opportunity to win a ‘City Cave Wellness pack’ worth $199 that includes a 60 min Float Therapy + 45 min Infrared Sauna + 45 min Massage.
