Registrars and Students

Our doctors have a strong commitment to GP training, and being located in a rural/remote area allows us to provide a broad and varied training experience.  Registrars and Students placed on Kangaroo Island not only work with our doctors in the primary care setting, but also gain experience in emergency medicine, antenatal and obstetric care, anaesthetics and surgery, and inpatient care at the local hospital.  Registrars and students also have the opportunity to work with and learn from our visiting specialists.

We are recognised as a quality teaching practice for the purposes of training doctors for fellowship of both the RACGP and ACCRM, and work with GPex to provide training for Registrars.  We pride ourselves on providing a supporting and extensive training environment and are pleased that a number of our registrars have returned to the Island post-fellowship to work with us.  Registrars are placed with us through the GPex placement process.

Each year the practice hosts two third-year Flinders University Rural Clinic School (FURCS) students.  FURCS Students spend the whole year with us until exams.  They are provided with a study room allowing videoconferencing access to University lectures, and are involved in parallel consulting at the clinic as well as hospital work with our doctors.  Flinders University Medical students interested in completing placement at the Kangaroo Island Medical Clinic should discuss with the University.

We may be able to provide other short-term placements for Medical Students.  If you are studying Medicine at a university other than Flinders and would like to complete a placement with us, please contact our Practice Manager.
