Rural Clinical School Teaching & Learning

Community Based Medical Education

Community Based Medical Education (CBME) at the Rural Clinical School (RCS)

GP Training for Students in General Practice

CBME at the RCS includes learning and teaching programs in both the General Practice clinical setting, a range of Primary Care settings, and a classroom based program at the RCS.

Whilst the RCS is primarily dedicated to providing the last two clinical years of the MBBS, other medical students from the earlier UTAS MBBS years of study visit the region to undertake CBME.

CBME Team at the Rural Clinical School

Workplace Learning is supported by an extensive team of General Practitioners working across approximately 16 practices. In addition, a wide group of health professionals working in allied health and other disciplines are involved with supervising students in the workplace.

The RCS has appointed an Associate Head of Community Based Education, to head up a team of core teaching clinicians who are engaged in student group learning programs and in supporting community based clinicians.

In 2011 GPs working as members of the core teaching team are: Dr Bryn Parry, Dr Satish Kumar and Dr Lizzi Shires.
