Clinical Skills Quorn Experience

Clinical Skills Quorn Experience

The Clinical Skills Quorn Experience has been provided by RDWA and hosted by resident Quorn GP, Dr Tony Lian-Lloyd for the past 18 years with almost 400 participants over that time.

The program continues to be highly valued by medical students from the University of Adelaide and Flinders University who are provided with the opportunity to gain insight in to rural medicine, develop their clinical skills, experience the rural community, network with rural GPs and develop their understanding of the role and lifestyle of a rural medicine career.

The wide ranging program includes:

  • Interactive medical presentations
  • Emergency and trauma medicine
  • Clinical skills sessions
  • Outdoor hikes in the beautiful landscape that borders the Flinders Range, including Warren Gorge and Devil’s Peak (optional participation)
  • Opportunities to get to know the GPs, local health professionals and volunteers in the community, as well as fellow students.

Participants are provided with a fully funded program that includes travel, accommodation for two nights and meals.

Positions for this fantastic opportunity are highly sought after. Applications are open to students who are:

  • in 1st year of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) at Finders University OR
  • in 2nd year of the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) at the University of Adelaide; AND
  • a member of their University Rural Health Club

The 2019 Clinical Skills Quorn Experience was held 12th to 14th April for 22 participants, presented by Dr Tony Lian-Lloyd, Dr Corina Sims, Dr Steve Holmes and Dr Kasia Strojek.

“I just wanted to acknowledge all your work getting the group out to Quorn and facilitating an absolutely fantastic weekend! I (and the rest if the Flinders crew) really did have one of the funner weekends I've had in very long time and frankly, despite my high expectations, far exceeded them. A testament to a great team at RDWA, the fantastic relationship with the town of Quorn and some incredibly inspirational doctors that make rural life not only possible but interesting and fun.”
Ben Forsyth, participant in the 2019 Clinical Skills Quorn Experience
