We have a particular commitment to ANU in Canberra, but also have had visits from students studying at UNE, JCU and Monash to name a few.
Our aim is to show the students how rewarding GP practice can be with the hope that someday they will return as GP’s to practice in rural areas where they are so badly needed.
