Medical Students

Our practice welcomes medical students from the University of Tasmania Medical School.
Teaching the next generation of doctors is of vital concern to our doctors, and to our local community.
It is also critical to give young medical students exposure to a great experience in the working life of general practice to help ensure they seriously consider general practice for their future vocation.
Medical students normally attend the practice eight times over a six week period, allowing six students a year to experience General Practice first hand. Hopefully this allows the students the opportunity to meet the same patients on more than one occasion to experience the continuity of medical care that is the hallmark of general practice.
Consistent with our practice policy, patients are always asked in advance for their consent to have medical students present in the consultation.
Students can expect to participate in a wide range of activities, including in-room consultations with a range of doctors, minor surgical procedures, home visits, local pharmacy attendance, pathology laboratory and imaging facility attendance, nursing home and health assessment visits, hands-on clinical software experience, front-of-house and GP triage, pharmaceutical company interaction, educational sessions, and more.
The student's general practice placement dovetails-in with teaching activities at the Launceston General Hospital Clinical School where first-rate teaching and clinical experience can be expected.
Tie this in with living in Launceston - one of Australia's premier regional cities - with close access to Tasmanian wilderness, beaches, cultural amenities, great pubs and nightclubs, excellent sporting facilities including the home of Tasmanian AFL football just down the road from the Mowbray surgery, and excellent weather, medical students who choose to travel north to Launceston and Northern Suburbs Medical Service for general practice teaching can expect a memorable learning experience that will stand them in good stead for their professional working lives.
And don't forget that the University of Tasmania's Newnham campus is just across the road from our practice, making it very convenient to access all those important Uni facilities such as the libraries, Student Association, and Student Bar.
Students who would like to 'get in first' to secure a term at our practice should contact the practice manager without delay.
Medical students who take the smart option and travel north from Hobart in and beyond 2010 can look forward to teaching in the new four-million dollar clinical school building, together with a major expansion in the LGH Department of Medicine and related acute medical services.
