MCCC GP TRAINING
Doctors of Eaglehawk Medical Group have been training GP Registrars for 15 years. Our supervisors are committed to a high quality training experience and encourage our registrars to become a valuable part of our practice team while they are here.
We work closely with the training body to ensure all aspects required to fulfill training requirements are met and that the registrars enjoy their time at our practice.
Working conditions and remuneration are as per the current National Terms and Conditions.
Full time GP Registrars participate in our after hours roster. On call week nights is until 11.00 p.m., generally just one night per week (may be more during leave periods for other Doctors). This is not onerous as there are very few calls. Following morning surgery on Saturday (after 12 midday) after hours calls are taken by the after hours service.
Our local PHN is actively involved with GP registrars and provides many CPD activities during the year.
Eaglehawk Medical Group was established in 1994. Our Doctors run their own practice from a purpose built building with five consulting rooms and a fully equipped treatment room.
Our practice has been fully accredited since 1999 and we have just completed our 7th round of accreditation. We keep up to date with all aspects of general practice and our staff have access to continual personal development.
Dr Doug Barrett, Dr Tali Barrett and Dr Rick Duke are three of the original associates and have been joined by Dr Patrick Duane and now Dr Saira Baloch.
We have a division one Practice Nurse who takes charge of our Treatment Room and assists Doctors with minor surgeries, ecg’s, wound management and dressings, immunisations, travel vax, ear syringes and all aspects of practice nursing. Our support Nurses assist with home health assessments and one is a trained pap provider.
Our five receptionists are all long term employees with a wealth of experience in handling all matters for our patients, and our Practice Manager is happy to share knowledge regarding all aspects of maintaining an efficient medical practice.
