Flinders NT Regional Training Hub releases 2020 Rural and Remote Incentive Bursary

Flinders NT Regional Training Hub is committed to supporting medical students and pre-vocational training doctors to live, work and stay in rural and remote NT as long as they are able to, and to maintain connection to the NT throughout their junior training years and into specialty training.

In response to this, the Flinders NT Regional Training Hub is offering the Rural and Remote Incentive Bursary which will be available for medical students and pre-vocational doctors that have shown commitment to furthering their training within the NT. The bursary will assist access to future training, skills acquisition, assessment fees, specialty college applications, specialty college interview travel as well as relevant conference attendance relevant to medical specialist training interests, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, rural and remote health.

The following allocation limits are to be used as a guide:

  • $1000 for 3rd Year Northern Territory Medical Program (NTMP) students
  • $1500 for 4th Year NTMP students
  • $3000 for Interns
  • $5000 PGY2 & Onwards

Program Manager, Eliza Gill says, ‘this is an exciting opportunity for the Flinders NT Regional Training Hub to support the ambitions of local students and pre-vocational doctors whilst strengthening future capacity for the Northern Territorian health workforce’.

Expressions of Interest are open now until close of business on 5th July 2020. Application forms and bursary guidelines can be downloaded via the website or contact fnt.rth@flinders.edu.au.
