About the Eyre and Far North Training Network

The Eyre and Far North  Local Health Network (EFNLHN) provides a range of clinical experiences in both hospital and primary care settings in Port Lincoln offering the full requirements of both the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) fellowship pathways.

In 2023, EFNLHN will offer PGY2 to advanced skills training, and then expand to include interns in 2024.  EFNLHN intern positions in 2023 form part of the Flinders and Upper Norther Training Network intern program with general practice rotations at the Lincoln Medical Centre and Investigator Clinic, both located in Port Lincoln. These rotations provide valuable experiences with hands on procedural skills. See the FUNLHN Training Network pages for the full range of intern rotations.

PGY2+ rotations are available over medical inpatients, emergency medicine, general practice/anaesthetics, general practice/obstetrics and general practice/emergency with advanced skills training in obstetrics and gynaecology (DRANZCOG).

Anticipated training positions for 2023 are listed below:
