Across the country we face a shortage of doctors and nurses to treat our ageing population. At Keperra Family Practice & Skin Cancer Clinic we believe we have an obligation to help train the next generation of doctors and nurses. We welcome medical students and nursing students to the practice and teach them as part of their university training. We see this as part of our commitment to improve the health of our community, over the longer term.
We also have GP Registrars in the practice. A Registrar is a doctor who has entered a training program (the General Practice Training Program in our case) to gain further supervised experience and complete study requirements, before sitting an exam to qualify to practice as a General Practitioner.
