Education

At Cheltenham Medical Centre we believe in nurturing and supporting the next generation of health care professionals and, as such, we are committed to providing quality medical education.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners requires aspiring General Practitioners to complete an advanced GP training program. Over at least two years, GP Registrars attend placements at a number of different medical practices.

We are accredited with Eastern Victoria General Practice Training to provide specialist training for qualified doctors who want to pursue a career in general practice.  A GP Registrar is a fully qualified medical doctor, undertaking advanced training to specialise in General Practice.  Our registrars generally spend a 6 month rotation with us under the guidance of our supervisors- Dr Katrina Reid and Dr Peter Mitchell.

At Cheltenham Medical Centre our registrars have a great opportunity to work in a busy and supportive environment that focuses on family medicine. We provide a dynamic and interesting educational program which helps our registrars to prepare for Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General practitioners. All doctors at the practice are interested in sharing their expertise and knowledge with our registrars and our patients benefit from the enthusiasm and care that our registrars bring. Whilst registrars move on to different practices after completing their terms, we sometimes welcome them back after the completion of training. 

Many of our doctors are active members of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
