Practice training style:
Our aim is to help you learn through a structured approach with weekly group learning sessions. All doctors run an ‘open-door’ policy with each other that extends to Registrars to capitalize on the extensive breadth and depth of knowledge and experience within our Practice. We believe that every Registrar has an individual and unique learning style. Within WTH, we have 4 doctors with additional qualifications in medical education including an Associate Professor in General Practice, and Adjunct Senior Lecturer and a GP Medical Educator. Informal learning takes place during lunch and corridors. Case analysis sessions are fun for the benefit of Registrars.
