Blackwood Clinic is affiliated with the Sturt Fleurieu General Practice and Education (SFGPET) organisation and
is committed to the highest quality of training and education for the future general practitioners in Australia.
GP Registrars are qualified doctors undertaking post-graduate training in the speciality of General Practice. GP Registrars at
Blackwood Clinic will undertake 6-12 month supervised rotations as part of their 3 year training program.
SFGPET has devised a structured set of "modules" for GP Registrars to complete during the first 12 months of their time in
general practice. GP Registrars at Blackwood Clinic can be anywhere within the final 2 years of their training program,
and as such their experience in general practice can vary. GP Registrars often come from a very diverse background of
previous medical (and other) careers.
Registrars on placement within our clinic work under the supervision and guidance of our GP Supervisory Team and our
Registrars are a valauble and integral part of providing health care to our patients.
Our clinic is also involved in teaching 3rd year student doctors from the Onkaparinga Clinical Education Program (OCEP) Program. The student doctor will work together with our doctors and nurses to observe consultations and
gain hands-on experience. The program is another vital component of GP training. Patients will be asked to complete a 3rd party consent form prior to their consultation where the student doctor will be present, however, patients may choose to decline to have the student doctor present.
