GP Registrars

Registrars are qualified doctors who have completed their medical degree and have undertaken a minimum of 2 years training in a public hospital. These doctors have chosen to specialise as a General Practitioner just as a surgeon or paediatrician undertakes further studies to specialise in their field. Registrars work under the supervision of the experienced GP’s in the practice and you are always welcome to ask the Registrar to double check management with your regular GP.

Medical Students

The Bungendore Medical Centre is a teaching practice directly affiliated with the Australian National University (ANU).  Dr Cross is a lecturer and tutor with the ANU.  Throughout the year we welcome 3rd year Medical Students for their Rural term. We also enjoy having Medical Students from other Universities.  The students invariably love the area, the patients and the experience in a Rural Practice. Some of our students from over the years have returned as doctors. Our other teaching experience is with post-graduate doctors before they sit their final exams for College Membership and it’s such a joy to have access to their wide level of experience. We all learn so much from them and from each other: after all medicine is about life long learning.
