About the Northern and Eyre Training Network

The Northern and Eyre Training Network (previously the Upper Northern Training Network) covers both Eyre and Far North (EFNLHN) and Flinders and Upper North (FUNLHN) Local Health Networks, providing a broad range of clinical experiences in both hospital and primary care settings through Port Augusta, Port Lincoln, and Whyalla. By joining these two local health networks into one training network they are collectively able to offer the full requirements of both RACGP and ACRRM fellowship pathways. This partnership includes rotations with the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) at Port Augusta that provides comprehensive primary health care services to residents in the far west and northern regions of South Australia. The RFDS has established a high quality RACGP accredited teaching practice and liaises with the Port Augusta Hospital and central medical services in Adelaide when providing services.

Rotations are available over anaesthetics, emergency medicine, medicine, obstetrics, RFDS, surgery, inpatients, and general practice.
