General Practice Network NT (GPNNT) supports the Northern Territory student health clubs in their endeavours to promote rural and remote health. These networks are collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams, funded by the National Rural Health Students Network (NRHSN) and aim to increase the workforce of rural and remote areas. One of GPNNT’s main areas of support is the Rural High School Visits (RHSV).
Rural High School Visits
In the NT, RHSVs aim to stimulate interest in health careers amongst rural and remote secondary school students by providing them with an opportunity to interact with young people currently studying a health discipline. The strategy is used nationally by the NRHSN. GPNNT operates two RHSV each year, in Central Australia and Top End, visiting each region for one week. High school workshops are delivered by 12 students from varying health disciplines from across Australia.
The scholarships listed are designed to encourage study in a health discipline and offer financial assistance to continued studies.
