Medical Students

Home Medical Students

We enjoy sharing our passion for general practice with students to support growing the general practice workforce. Medical students are our future doctors. We need the help of our patients to train the next generation of doctors. Torquay Doctors and Craignish Doctors regularly hosts medical students from James Cook University and The University of Queensland. The Doctors work with these Universities to develop students’ knowledge and skills in community-based primary health care. During their placement students experience doctor-patient interactions, participate in the team care of patients and spend time with reception, nursing and other practice staff. Allowing a medical student to take part in your consultation today will help us to shape tomorrow’s health professionals. (Please note that your GP will remain responsible for your medical advice about your condition at all times and that our medical students will treat your privacy with the same degree of professionalism as the clinic staff. Of course the choice to have a medical student involved in your consultation is always yours.)
