extra information

Practice ethos/philosophy:

We are a teaching medical practice. That means that we are, and always will be, a place of learning. We are inherently curious.

We overcome health inequalities by offering accessible, affordable & highly evidenced-based medical care to our community.

We do that in teams. We think & reflect deeply about the needs of our patients and how we can meet them in a meaningful way.

We demonstrate commitment. We have impact. We make our community healthier.

 

Practice expectation of registrar:

Our registrars benefit from a commitment to teaching and learning from and within a rural community. Registrars should be prepared to participate in weekly clinical meetings, medical student teaching and dedicated one on one GP supervisor teaching.

Information about town and facilities:

Cygnet is a quaint village 20 minutes from Huonville and 45 minutes from Hobart. With cafes, green spaces and weekend markets, it is a vibrant place to work and live.
