Training

Registrars

In association with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Training Program, an experienced Registrar (who has completed a number of years working in hospitals) will work in our practice for 6 or 12 month periods, as part of our specialisation for general practice.

It is important for us to receive your feedback on the care given to you by the Registrar.  This is their introduction into family general practice and is somewhat different to the hospital surroundings they are accustomed to.

It is important for them to gain positive experiences in a rural practice with a long term outlook of remaining in the country areas.  For this reason it is important for us to receive your feedback, both good and bad enabling us to pass on the expertise of our senior practitioners.

Students

Our doctors are clinical teachers for Monash University.  Therefore, from time to time a medical student may be involved in your care.  You may be offered an appointment with one of our medical students with supervision by a doctor of the practice.   At the time of making your appointment please inform our reception staff if you do not wish to participate in this program. 

Medical students are bound by the same ethical standards in regards to confidentiality as your doctor.  There are two full time students within the practice for a 12 month period.
