The Aeromedical Retrieval program of the Charles Darwin University is an innovative course designed for healthcare professionals seeking to extend their knowledge of aeromedical retrieval, and develop foundational research skills.


About the Program

Developed in partnership with The National Critical Care Trauma Response Centre, CareFlight (NT) and The Royal Flying Doctor Services (SA and Central Operations), this is a practical and industry-relevant course for nurses, midwives, physicians and other health professionals.

The Aeromedical Retrieval program of the Charles Darwin University will build on fundamental principles and your clinical practice, equipping you to provide safe clinical care in the air in national and international situations.

You will study mostly online and complete on-campus intensives. This flexible course addresses delivery processes, critical reflection on aeromedical retrieval practice, and the effects of policy and politics on health care provision, access and individual agency.

The Master in Aeromedical Retrieval will analyse the essentials of retrieval from neonatal care to adult care, including obstetrics.

An often-overlooked component of aeromedical retrieval is logistics. This course is an opportunity to critically reflect on both domestic and international logistics considerations.

This course, underpinned by cultural safety framework principles of safety and competence, will expand on your current or recent experience within the health service. During the course you will undertake education and assessments that have a direct application to your current or future professional practice and context
