Pocket Program Partner
Northern Territory General Practice Education is the RTO of choice for training in Aboriginal health.
“The wealth of variety that comes through the door consistently is amazing. Throughout my clinical training whether it’s been hospital based or GP based, the breadth I see is not what they are seeing down south”. – Dr Sarah Lord, GP registrar Term 1, Palmerston Super Clinic, NT
“I think coming out to these Indigenous communities and being able to appreciate what these communities are like gives me a much broader understanding of the context in which our Indigenous patients live in and what issues they bring with them when they come and see us in the clinics. In that sense, it definitely helps me to build my skills as a doctor”. – Dr Prashanti Manchikanti, GP registrar Term 1, Yirrkala Health Centre, NT
“So a really varied role was what I was chasing and I think it’s something that a lot of my peers would have liked to have done as well but I don’t think the opportunities were as prevalent elsewhere”. – Dr Jahde Dennis, GP registrar Term 2, Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation, NT
