The clinicians at Bairnsdale Medical Group are committed to nurturing and developing the next generation of doctors through teaching.

The clinic is an accredited teaching practice and mentors a cohort of training doctors during the scholastic year. These include Fourth year Monash University medical students who work at the clinic. They consult with patients under the supervision of our experienced clinicians.

There is no obligation for you to be seen by a student. Be aware, though, that these prospective doctors will be working in a hospital casualty department when they graduate and will benefit from the experience they receive whilst training.

Teaching methods

Registrars are doctors who have graduated and have been working for a number of years and decided to specialize in General practice. They consult independently and are assigned a supervisor who can mentor them in specific areas of medicine.

These doctors work toward their Fellowship in General practice over a two year period.

Our clinicians are employed at the Bairnsdale Regional Health Service as Visiting Medical Officers and are involved with the teaching of hospital junior doctors.
