Tablelands

The Tablelands region offers a diverse range of rural general practice training opportunities. 

There are four main placement sites in the Tablelands region where you may be based during your GP training. These include: Atherton, Malanda, Mareeba and Yungaburra.

There are major hospital facilities in Atherton and Mareeba, with outreach services to surrounding locations. Training posts are supported by onsite visiting specialists and allied health practitioners from the Cairns Base Hospital.

Registrars have opportunities to gain experience across Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, minor surgery, tropical medicine, procedural obstetrics, anaesthetics, counselling, sexual health and women’s health. The Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service is comprised of 21 hospitals.
