The NT Medical Careers Expo was a great success attended by more than 100 early career doctors and students on Thursday May 26.
The expo provided attendees with the opportunity to converse and network with industry representatives.
More than 80 medical students and junior doctors attended the expo with 16 exhibitors setting up information booths and interactive displays.
The Flinders Regional Training Hub hosts the annual event to provide opportunities for medical students and junior doctors to meet with specialist medical colleges, local training organisations and NT clinicians.
Flinders Regional Training Hub program manager Eliza Gill said the evening was a great opportunity for junior doctors and students to learn about the career opportunities out there for them.
“The expo provided attendees with the opportunity to be inspired, meet with local experts in their field, along with college representatives, ask questions and learn about the training opportunities in the NT and beyond,” Ms Gill said.
Exhibitors included the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine, Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists, Royal Australian College of Physicians and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons just to name a few.
In a push to move away from static booths exhibitors were encouraged to provide an activity to help engage with attendees.
Activities on the night included, a resuscitation station, learning how to intubate someone for anaesthesia, suturing, and keyhole surgery.
This year, attendees were encouraged to download an app where exhibitors had uploaded information as well as complete a questionnaire to go into the running to win a prize.
