Trainees are able to complete their entire Basic and Advanced Adult training experience within the Northern Territory. The terms available for registrar training currently include:
- adult acute inpatient
- adult community

- on call (emergency)
- rural/remote psychiatry.
There are also advanced (extended training location) positions available for supervised rural training for the East Arnhem and Katherine regions.

Royal Darwin Hospital Trainees in other training schemes such as General Practice and Emergency Medicine have also found a three to six month term a valuable complement to their experience.
