Medical Students

Dr Tony with former John Flynn Medical Student Ingrid Salna

Kanyaka Surgery is one of 3 GP clinics offering placement for medical students during their 5th year rural academic placements at Port Augusta. Each medical student is on an 8-weeks rotation and spends two days a week in Quorn during the 8 week block. This program allows medical students to experience all that rural and remote medicine offers.

A notice of the presence of a student will be placed on the front door.  Patients are to let reception staff knows on arrival, if they have any objection to the medical student being present during the consultation.

The Quorn Clinical Skills Weekend offers an exciting opportunity for medical students to experience the benefits of a career in rural medicine including opportunities to practice procedural medicine, the value of community support and a fantastic lifestyle.

The program includes clinical skills sessions and opportunities to explore the Southern Flinders Ranges. In collaboration with the Rural Doctors Workforce Agency and rural GPs – Dr Tony Lian-Lloyd, Dr Steve Holmes and Dr Corina Simms and Dr Kasia Strojek – this weekend provides opportunities to network with other medical students and rural medical professionals.

This event is open to medical students who are members of AURHA or FURHS. For more information or to register, please visit the RDWA website
