Short Courses 2014 Print E-mail

2015 Courses, dates & locations will be added later in 2014.

The Centre for Remote Health offers a range of short courses for Remote Health Professionals and those interested in working in Remote Australia. The courses are offered in a number of locations around Australia, with the majority of the courses being delivered in Alice Springs.

These short courses can be undertaken as continuing professional development and many have been accredited for CPD points with professional organisations for Nurses, Health Professionals, and Medical Practitioners.

Many short courses also are mandatory components of Flinders University award courses in Remote Health Practice and the Master of Remote and Indigenous Health. As such, participants join a varied cohort of learners across a range of professions who practise in isolated locations around Australia.

Registration for all courses is essential, irrespective of the cost.
More courses and locations are expected to be added during 2014.
