North West

The North West region of Queensland provides registrars with unique opportunities to gain medical knowledge and experiences in a region of scenic landscapes and rich Aboriginal culture.

There are nine main placement sites in the North West region where you may be based during your GP training. These include: Cloncurry, Doomadgee, Julia Creek, Karumba, Mornington Island, Mt Isa and Normanton.

Training posts provide opportunities across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, retrieval medicine, mental health, sexual health, minor surgery, Public Health, obstetrics and occupational medicine within the surrounding mine industry.

We serve a population of over 30 thousand people across a large and diverse geographical area.

The JCU GP Training regional office network delivers training and education that is community-oriented and engaged and connected to issues of relevance to the region.

Hospitals are established in Mount Isa and Cloncurry with visiting health services from the Mount Isa Hospital to Cloncurry regularly. The North West Hospital and Health Services includes nine hospitals.
