Clinical tutors

Clinical tutors are clinicians who teach UWA students in campus-based small group tutorials.

UWA has recognised the value of the generalist skills of General Practitioners and our clinical tutors play a major role in early clinical teaching in the MD curriculum. The MD curriculum is underpinned by a philosophy of early exposure to clinical content and experience. General Practice is proud to be involved in teaching the MD students from the commencement of their course.


We have clinical tutors who teach students in both Case Enhanced Learning and Clinical Skills tutorials from Semester 1 Year 1. These tutorials are in small groups and based on campus. Clinical tutors are able to see students progress from the earliest days of their learning as they develop the basic skills required to practice medicine.

Clinical tutors teach in the following units:
