Working in remote and very remote communities across the Northern Territory will bring challenges and experiences you may never have had in an urban clinic. To support you in starting, transitioning and enjoying your time working in a remote NT Aboriginal community, the NT Remote Locum Program has designed a collection of free online eLearning modules. 

These modules are available to all health professionals who have or are about to undertake placements with us and those interested in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's health.

All modules are underpinned by evidence-based practices and best-practice clinical and learning principles. Several modules meet the criteria for Continuing Professional Development programs with various colleges and professional bodies.
