We are proudly a teaching clinic, we believe that this improves that standard of care provided in the clinic and contributes to the next generation of doctors. As such, we may have medical and nursing students sitting in with our doctors and nurses. We will obtain your consent of whether you will allow students to be present prior to your consult.

All our doctors are experienced in providing medical student education with many receiving Excellence in Teaching Awards. We believe that students should learn in a hands on manner.

At Sapphire Clinic, we host:

• Australian National University medical students in their 3rd year (out of a 4 year degree)

• John Flynn Scholars who are medical students who return annually over their entire course from any Australian Medical School

• Elective students in their senior years who apply from any Australian Medical School

If you are interested in a general practice placement please contact our clinic on (02) 6495 4700.
