Shepparton Medical Centre
Medical Services - Shepparton, VIC
Welcome to the University of Melbourne Shepparton Medical Centre. We believe that healthcare is about so much more than a diagnosis and medicines.
The University of Melbourne Shepparton Medical Centre provides high quality, comprehensive primary healthcare to people living in and around Shepparton. The first purpose-built teaching clinic in Australia, the centre was developed to support the University's School of Rural Health, then known as the Rural Clinical School. Teaching and learning is therefore at the heart of the clinic's mission. All GPs working at the centre are enthusiastic, experienced doctors and medical educators.
The practice has a strong emphasis on delivering a high quality level of care in an atmosphere of mutual support, good communication and having fun.
To provide the general public of Shepparton & districts an excellent general practice service, within a financially self-sustaining facility while supporting a teaching environment.
Facilitating experiential learning, for primarily but not exclusively, medical students while delivering high quality patient care and maximizing the available time for learning opportunities.
The practice is an architecturally designed facility which prides itself on its welcoming environment and patient focussed, team based model of care. It incorporates and embraces the latest in computer technologies including access to the on-line resources of the Melbourne Medical School. The practice delivers patient care in a multidisciplinary, vertically integrated way and in addition to primary care (general practice), runs specialty clinics (including psychiatry, neurology, and infectious disease) and allied health clinics. Specialists, allied health, and practice nurse colleagues all contribute to teaching and team based care.
