Doctors' Health NT Program
Working as a medical practitioner in a hospital in the NT is a unique, rich and challenging experience. The Doctors' Health NT program works closely with local medical staff to assist when support is needed and provide information and presentations on how to maintain good health and wellbeing in a busy doctor role.
Top End Regional Health Service is a partner of the program to improve health and wellbeing of all our doctors.
A 24/7 anonymous helpline is available on (08) 8366 0250
Hospital Doctors' Health and Wellbeing Interest Group
The Hospital Doctors' Health and Wellbeing Interest Group has been formed to help hospital doctors to be physically and psychologically fit to do their job.
To contact the Hospital Doctors' Health and Wellbeing group, please email the Medical Education Officer at MedicalEducationUnit.THS@nt.gov.au.
International Medical Graduate Support Network
The Top End Regional Health Service values diversity and the multicultural workforce it employs. Every year we have a large number of International Medical Graduates (IMGs) who commence employment in one of our four hospitals. Transitioning to the Australian health care system and Australian workplace for the first time can be an anxious time for junior doctors.
The IMG Support Network is a safe and supportive group where IMGs can ask questions of other IMGs who have worked at TEHS for various lengths of time. The Network provides a point of contact and mentor for work related queries as well as creating opportunities to socialise.
To get involved or for more information, contact the Medical Education Unit at MedicalEducationUnit.THS@nt.gov.au.
Supervisor Network Meeting
The Supervisor Network Meeting is an informal, safe and supportive group where supervisors come to share stories, problem solve difficult situations and share resources and support one another.
To get involved contact the Medical Education Unit at MedicalEducationUnit.THS@nt.gov.au.
