Where we work


Rocketship partnered with the Timorese Ministry of Health, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e to design and deliver the country’s first postgraduate Family Medicine Programme, which commenced in 2015. This collaboration led to the establishment of Rocketship’s Trainer Team model, whereby experienced rural generalist volunteers provide remote medical education, mentorship, clinical teaching visits and assessments to trainees living and working in their own country. This same model has since been successfully used by Rocketship to enable similar programmes to be established in Tonga and Vanuatu.
