Accredited Training Practice

Coastal Health Medical Centres are Accredited Training Practices. As an accredited training practice we are able to train doctors specialising in General Practice – known as General Practice Registrars.

What is a General Practice Registrar?

A GP Registrar is a fully qualified medical doctor, undertaking advanced training to specialise in General Practice.

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) requires General Practitioners to complete an advanced GP training program which they complete over three years.  They are required to complete their training program at a minimum of two GP clinics during this time.

At Coastal Health Medical Centre they have an opportunity to work in a state-of-the-art facility in a supportive environment with a highly professional team of Doctors and nurses that focus on providing comprehensive health care services to our patients.

Being qualified medical doctors, GP Registrars are knowledgeable and skilled.  At times they may ask our Accredited Supervisors in our practice to assist them in your consultation for their expertise and advice in your health care.

After 6 months, registrars sometimes move onto their next placement – and once they have completed their final exams they may return to Coastal Health Medical Centre.

We are still open delivering quality healthcare during this ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our reception staff are happy to assist you with your enquiries and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we attend to your needs, however rude or aggressive behaviour will not be tolerated.
