We are looking forward to welcoming our 2019 Medical Student from Melbourne University’s Extended Rural Cohort Partnership.
Students consult with patients alongside their supervising doctors. Patients will be advised at time of booking appointment if they are seeing a student doctor.
The University of Melbourne is grateful for your role in the education of their students.
In February 2003 I commenced an 18month rural GP registrar placement with the Central General Practice. During this time I obtained experience across a diverse range of clinical situations and was able to build my skills both in common general practice presentations as well as emergency medicine with the Mansfield Hospital. I also very much enjoyed the other benefits that life in the Mansfield district has to offer, such as skiing, horse riding and alpine environment.
In 2008, three years after completing my training my husband and I decided to make a tree change and return to Mansfield and take up where I left off with the Central General Practice. Since then I have further developed my skills in obstetrics and very much enjoy the on going role that a country GP is able to play in family medicine. Overall it has been a great experience for the whole family. There are three terrific primary schools to choose from. Outside of school there is a great range of activities that just wouldn’t be an option in the city such as skiing, horse riding, mountain biking and water skiing as well as the more traditional sports and arts. Last but by no means least I have found the Mansfield community to be appreciative, welcoming, diverse and safe.
