Our doctors and nurses undergo intensive orientation programs, followed by the highest standards of continuing education accreditation. They typically train in winching, in-flight and inter-hospital scenarios, and cliff top and ocean edge safety, as well as undertaking Helicopter Underwater Escape Training (HUET).
This equips our medical staff with the elite skills they need to reach and treat patients in the most inaccessible places.
CareFlight also runs a medical registrar training program, accredited for specialist training in critical care. CareFlight was the first organisation in Australia to be accredited by the Specialist Medical Colleges for training outside of the hospital context. Since implementing the program more than 25 years ago, we have provided valuable training and hands-on experience to many of the specialist doctors now working in critical care around Australia.
