Applicant Eligibility Categories

Positions in the NT for Internship are competitive and the number of vacancies are limited. Previous experience of working/studying in the NT in a rural, remote and/or Aboriginal health location will give an applicant good standing in this process. However, all Medical graduate applicants will be selected against their capacity to work in a rural and remote environment.

If you have completed an Internship previously (overseas) please go to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Website for more information.
