Top End Health Service specialities and rotations


Message from the Executive Director, Medical Services

The Top End is an extraordinary place to work and live. The Top End Health Service (TEHS) offers unique and diverse training and employment possibilities for doctors, and has inherited a long and proud tradition of meeting the healthcare needs of communities within the Northern Territory.

TEHS training sites include Royal Darwin Hospital, TEHS regional hospitals in Palmerston, Katherine and Gove, Primary Health Care and the Top End Mental Health. Working within TEHS affords the opportunity to obtain unparalleled clinical experience and training in acute care, rural and remote health, Indigenous health, and tropical health. Training is supported by motivated, welcoming and highly committed medical colleagues, who work in collaboration with the other exceptionally dedicated members of the TEHS health care team.

Working in the NT provides an opportunity to make a difference.

We hope that you will consider a longer-term plan for joining us and become part of the NT medical workforce.

Dr Charles Pain
