The role of our health professionals

One of the Bendigo Primary Care Centre’s priorities is to continue to build an integrated health education and training environment underpinned by contemporary learning and teaching strategies. Our programs span pre-vocational placements for nursing, medicine and allied health students, as well as customised training for post-graduate GP registrars and the Prevocational General Practice Placement Program (PGPPP). The centre is an accredited training practice with trained and accredited supervisors and teachers.

Our whole of practice approach to teaching and professional development aims to capitalise on opportunities for discipline-specific and inter-professional learning for students and our staff.

There are many ways our health professionals contribute to our teaching and professional development activities:

  • Formally, as a clinical supervisor, preceptor or student mentor
  • Informally, through involvement in team meetings, case-based learning discussions, formative student assessments or scheduled staff professional development sessions.
