Doctors of Eaglehawk Medical Group have been training GP Registrars for 15 years. Our supervisors are committed to a high quality training experience and encourage our registrars to become a valuable part of our practice team while they are with us. We work closely with the training body to ensure all aspects required to fulfil training requirements are met and that registrars enjoy their time at our practice.
The practice was established in 1994. We are located in a purpose built building with five consulting rooms and a fully equipped treatment room.
We have been fully accredited since 1999 and are looking forward to our 8th round of accreditation.
We are a friendly practice with Doctors and experienced staff working as a team to provide high quality ongoing health and wellbeing management to our patients.
