Stadium Accredited Teaching Program
As an accredited teaching practice through the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians we are committed to providing a centre of excellence that focus’ on the training, mentoring and continuing education of the next generation of sport physicians within Australia.
Registrar Sport and Exercise Physicians are 3 years post graduating medical practitioners. They have completed their part 1 Fellowship examination for the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians and have been accepted onto their training scheme. The specialist training program involves a further 4-5 years of study and clinical practice in accordance with College guidelines.
At the clinic, we currently have two registrar sport and exercise physicians on our teaching program. The clinic provides ongoing supervision, engagement and teaching with senior physicians within the practice.
Our registrars are highly knowledgeable, competent and expertly trained. They have access to the varied Specialists that consult at the clinic, on-site radiology and physiotherapy practices. By utilising these resources along with their extensive training, patients receive a professional high standard assessment.
Our senior physicians will be available to provide advice and guidance on patient management should they require it.
Along with a thorough examination, another benefit of consulting with one of our registrar physicians is you do not require a GP, specialist or physiotherapist referral. However, you will still receive a Medicare rebate.
In conjunction with our registrar teaching program we offer 4 placements a year to National and International medical students, who spend a number of weeks shadowing our specialist team. These placements provide students with an opportunity to explore their interest in the area of sport and exercise medicine and help them gain an insight into how the specialty is best practised, in a multi-disciplinary setting.
We recognise the importance in creating a platform where students, patients and doctors alike can challenge ideas, ask questions and seek ways to achieve best possible practice.
