Information for patients
What is a GP registrar?
A GP registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is enrolled in a training program and working towards their fellowship with their chosen college to be a specialist GP. They have completed medical school and a minimum of 2 years training in hospitals before commencing work in general practice. Registrars are studying and working towards passing several exams set by their college before they can achieve their fellowship and work unsupervised anywhere in Australia.
Maffra Medical Group in association with Monash University Rural School of Health, supports medical students within the practice. Year 4C medical students are placed in the practice for the academic year. This provides valuable learning as they are able to follow a patient journey over time. Year 2 & 3 students are offered observation placement and attend for a day only.
As a patient you may be offered an appointment to see a Year 4C student prior to your consultation with the GP, or you may be advised there is a student sitting in on the GP’s consultations. Your participation is a valuable contribution to the future of our community’s health. If at any time you do not wish to participate please feel free to advise our reception staff.
Medical Students are bound by the same ethical standards regarding confidentiality as your doctor.
