Medical Students

Hawkins Medical Clinic has a long history of providing training to medical students from Flinders University.

Since 2002 more than 40 students have spent 12 months based in the clinic and the good exposure to everyday clinical practice has resulted in excellent experience. Thank you to all patients who consent to seeing medical students, you are equipping the future medical workforce. Our graduates now in clinical practice include- rural GPs, pediatricians, Emergency medicine doctors and physicians. Several of the current Hawkins GPs participated in their rural placements and it's exciting to see graduates choosing to continue serving their rural communities. It wouldn't be possible without an accommodating patient base.

Hawkins Medical Clinic is now the only clinic in Mt Gambier providing prevocational medical training and we remain committed to providing training into the future.

One of our GP’s Dr Pradeep PV has been awarded the Burns Alpers Award for excellence in clinical teaching 4 times. This award is given by students for the most beneficial and influential teacher of the year. We are proud of the efforts our doctors put in to ensure students are well trained and understand the importance of a solid foundation of knowledge before becoming fully qualified.

The rural teaching program is administered within the region by Dr Lucie Walters and within Hawkins Clinic by Dr Scott Milan.
