Clinical Skills Quorn Experience

A full weekend experience of rural general practice and emergency medicine alongside a rural GP in the historic town of Quorn.

So you’re at medical school and thinking about what the future holds.  Have you thought about a career in rural medicine?  Here’s your chance to see it first-hand.

About the Program

The Clinical Skills Quorn Experience is a highly sought after opportunity for you to gain a unique insight into life as a rural GP.

Students spend time at Quorn Health Services, learning about the importance of country hospitals and how they form the heart of the community in which they operate.

You’ll get to see elements of rural general practice and emergency medicine and have a chance to spend time with rural GPs.  You’ll be able to practice some clinical skills, hear first-hand from rural GPs about their work and lifestyle in the country, and meet some of the local community.

We’re pleased to be able to offer this fully funded experience that includes:

  • Access to local GPs who will facilitate an interactive program that includes presentations on emergency and trauma medicine and clinical skills sessions.
  • Return travel to Quorn, including all meals and two nights’ accommodation.
  • Time to explore the town, and dinner on Saturday night to network with fellow students, rural GPs and GP registrars.
  • An opportunity to explore the beautiful landscape that borders the Flinders Ranges, including hikes through Warren Gorge and Devil’s Peak.

Eligibility

You can apply to take part in the Clinical Skills Quorn Experience if you are in your first or second year of medicine at Finders University or the University of Adelaide, and you are a member of your University Rural Health Club or thinking about joining your Rural Health Club.

“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
