DOC-Remote Health Experience 2013 - Flinders University
Records the events of the 2013 Remote Health Experience Program, held in Katherine Nothern Territory.
This was an event for Year 2 NT Medical Program students, Nursing students, Allied Health staff and Aboriginal Health Workers.
The NTRCS Katherine Campus at O’Keefe House offers students a diverse range of opportunities to experience the broad brush of rural medical practice.
Year 3 students move across the general practice setting in a local GP clinic and an Aboriginal Medical Service; participate in daily hospital rounds as part of the medical team; join visiting consultants in surgery, medicine, midwifery and paediatrics; attend community facilities including an aged care residence, family planning clinic, ante-natal clinic, diabetes educator clinic, various allied health clinics, and of course, visit remote communities.
A local psychiatrist with academic status also contributes to the curriculum through tutorials.
Public Health matters are studied ‘in situ’ at Binjari Health Clinic, and of course, Katherine is close to the spectacular Nitmiluk and Kakadu National Parks!
The full list of the recorded interviews are on the longer DVD version available at the Flinder University Katherine
