About the Flinders and Upper North Training Network
The Flinders and Upper North Local Health Network (FUNLHN) provides a broad range of clinical experiences in both hospital and primary care settings based in Whyalla and through Port Lincoln in the Eyre and Far North Local Health Network (EFNLHN). You will also gain a unique experience in your intern year and PGY2+, with rotations at the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) in Port Augusta providing comprehensive primary health care services to residents in the far west and northern regions of South Australia. The RFDS has established a high quality Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) accredited teaching practice and liaises with the Port Augusta Hospital and Health Service and central medical services in Adelaide when providing services.
For interns, FUNLHN partners with EFNLHN to deliver intern rotations across emergency medicine/general practice, general medicine, general surgery and general practice. While PGY2+ rotations are available over anaesthetics, obstetrics, emergency, general inpatients/paediatrics and adult medicine/emergency. Advanced skills training is offered in obstetrics and gynaecology (DRANZCOG) and anaesthetics (Dip RGA).
FUNLHN offers the full requirements of both the RACGP and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) fellowship pathways.
