Doctors in Training
Loxton Health Centre is committed to medical education, training medical students to become future doctors and junior doctors to become general practitioners, ultimately benefiting both our community and Rural Family Practice in general.
Loxton Health Centre has been involved with training medical students as a part of the internationally acclaimed Flinders University Parallel Rural Community Curriculum (PRCC) since the program began in 1999.
Two medical students spend the entire 3rd year of their training based in our practice and we are grateful for the goodwill and understanding shown by our patients who each help to train the medical students involved in their care.
Dr Jo Rutzen is the GP Supervisor for our medical students.
Our students in 2018 are Jennifer Rossiter and Belinda Wouters.
GENERAL PRACTICE REGISTRARS
Together with GPEx GP Training Programme, Loxton Health Centre is involved in training future general practitioners. Doctors who are in training to become Rural General Practitioners spend 18 months working fulltime in general practice, in addition to their hospital training. Dr Cameron Robertson and Dr Godfrey Amaechi are the GP Supervisors for our GP registrars.
Our 2018 registrar is Dr Lachlan Mackinnon.
