Student Networking and Inter-Professional Sessions
Centre for Remote Health

The Centre for Remote Health hosts regular Student Networking and Inter-Professional Sessions (SNIPS) for students and other interested professionals from all health related disciplines. 

The aim is to present information on an area that students may be interested in, focussing on inter-professional, person centred care.  It is also an opportunity to network with students from other areas and other universities and to share placement experiences. Sessions are generally held fortnightly and are open to all students in any area of health from any university. Bookings are not required.

Session Locations
Alice Springs: Centre for Remote Health, Cnr Simpson & Skinner Streets, Alice Springs
Tennant Creek: Tennant Creek Hospital, Education Room (via Video Conference)
Katherine: Katherine Hospital (via Video Conference)
