Busselton Medical Practice is committed to training qualified doctors in the specialty of general practice. As part of this commitment we provide supervised attachments of 6-12 months duration for registered medical practitioners training in the specialty of General Practice. In exchange for providing them with guidance and experience in General Practice we are in turn provided with enthusiastic doctors who bring new ideas and knowledge to our medical community. In fostering their development as General Practitioners we hope to someday have them return to work with us in a full time capacity.
