Our Role

To improve the health and wellbeing of all Territorians and their families by:

  • Providing individual, family and community  health and wellbeing services;
  • Ensuring timely access to emergency and acute hospital care;
  • Working with communities in the planning, development, delivery and evaluation of health and family services;

Funded by Health Workforce Australia, the Northern Territory Regional Training Network is part of national network focusing on improving and expanding access to quality clinical training opportunities across Australia.

The NT Regional Training Network has recently been established and will play a pivotal role in facilitating, identifying and aligning clinical training placements across the higher education (including VET) and clinical training sectors at a local and regional level. The network aims to lead and facilitate the strategic planning and development of quality clinical education and training activities and workforce requirements that will meet the future healthcare needs of the NT community.

The NT RTN will contribute to the increase in the level of clinical training activity by building capacity and identifying opportunities to more efficiently use existing capacity. The scope of clinical training must include vocational, professional entry, post graduate and specialist training.
