CDU Menzies Medical Program

Curriculum Working Group

The CDU Menzies Medical Program's Curriculum Working Group (CWG) is being established to work with the program and key stakeholders to play an instrumental role in shaping the development of a locally led and delivered medical program curriculum in the Northern Territory.

The CWG is developing an authentic NT-focused curriculum to train future medical doctors fit for the needs of the Territory.

The CWG will also provide advice to the Strategic Advisory Board concerning accreditation, stakeholder engagement and professional development.
