Clinical lecturers

The General Practitioners who take UWA students in their practice for clinical learning are referred to as clinical lecturers, and are highly valued members of the teaching team.

It is here that the students see the ‘coalface’ of medicine both in urban and rural environments. They are able to put into practice the theory they have been learning on campus.
