The Stirk Medical Group is very proud of it’s training heritage and as we come up to our 50th Birthday (in 2014) we have had close to a 100 Registrars train and work with us. Not only do we have regular GP Registrars, but we have had other junior doctors, working at the practice. They joined us as part of their general hospital training, getting a ‘taste’ of working as a GP. This was usually for a 3 to 6 months spell. The Stirk Medical Group is highly committed to the training of Junior doctors and was awarded Training Practice of the Year in 2008.
The practice frequently has Medical Students from the University of West Australia and Notre Dame University. The Students will often be sitting in with the doctor. If you are not comfortable with a Student being present, we quite understand, just let our reception or medical staff know. The Medical Students appreciate the opportunity to sit in consultations , but equally understand the importance of stepping out of the consulting room, when necessary.
Hospital and Community Care
Many of the doctors, working at the practice, are able to offer care to some of the local Nursing Homes in the Hills and surrounding community. The community also still has a small hospital operating in the area; the Kalamunda Hospital and Health Service. As a community, we are fortunate to have this friendly small local Government Hospital. It provides a small range of medical services, primarily centred around palliative care.
The surgery is also able to let you know of other services that are available in our community. Please discuss your needs with your GP or our Primary Care Nurse, or other members of our Practice Staff.
