We invite you to complete your internship at the Northern and Eyre Training Network based across Flinders and Upper North Local Health Network (FUNLHN) and Eyre and Far North Local Health Network (EFNLHN) where an internship will set you up well for a rural generalist career with the potential to continue your PGY2+ years in a rural setting. This rural immersion intern experience will provide you with broad experiences across diverse clinical areas including emergency medicine, general medicine, general surgery and general practice. You will have opportunities to work with experienced healthcare teams under the personalised supervision of experienced rural clinicians, challenge yourself to gain valuable experience with hands-on procedural skills, and have access to learning opportunities including weekly junior doctor tutorials, simulation sessions, Journal Club and Grand Rounds.

Being a member of a small cohort of interns you will have access to significant individual support from the Regional Training Hub based in Whyalla and Adelaide Rural Clinical School (ARCS) Medical Education Unit. You will be able to embrace close working relationships with your junior and senior medical colleagues. The working culture within the Northern and Eyre Training Network embraces team work and all team members are highly valued for the skills and knowledge they are able to contribute to patient care.

We invite you to become a valued member of the healthcare team in addition to the local communities in Port Augusta, Port Lincoln and Whyalla.
