Registrar Training Program Overview
GP Registrars are fully trained and qualified doctors, who are undergoing further training to achieve their qualification as a specialist General Practitioner.
Federation Clinic has been involved in the training of GP Registrars at all levels for more than 30 years. GP Registrars are a vital part of the medical team at the Clinic. The Clinic is an Accredited Teaching Practice through Murray City Country Coast (MCCC) GP Training, the organisation responsible for overseeing General Practice Registrar training across most of Victoria.
The Clinic has three senior supervisors providing this teaching and support, they are Dr Phillip Steele, Dr Geoff Williams and Dr Fiona Christie. Undertaking training as a GP Registrar with Federation Clinic involves many hours of formal and informal teaching. Specific teaching in areas of special interest of the supervisors is available, including; antenatal and obstetric care, women’s health, pigmented skin lesions, infection control and more. Additional teaching sessions include our nursing team and their areas of expertise, including; chronic disease management and immunisation. Teaching visits to local specialists rooms can also be arranged for further education. Other education opportunities are available at seminars, conferences and dinners held the area for the local medical community, which is also a great opportunity to meet other doctors in the region.
