Registrar ProgramRegistrar Program

Pioneer Health is a large General Practice with 16 000+ active patients. We have 18 permanent practitioners as well as up to 6 registrars, supported by 12 practice nurses. 

Our purpose built medical centre has 12 consulting rooms as well as procedure rooms.

Pioneer Health Albany has a focus on education and teaching, we actively support the registrar training program, rural clinical school and student attachments.

Learning Opportunities and Assessments

With a large practice comes a large range of learning opportunities such as obstetrics, skin, minor surgery, occupational medicine, palliative care, chronic disease management, Indigenous health, mental health and aged care.

Along with the mid-term and end-of-term formal assessments required by WAGPET, Pioneer Health registrars have weekly one-on-one sessions with their supervisors, plus weekly case studies and corridor learning.

From the Team

Dr Yen Lo

2018 Registrar of the Year

"If you are interested in GP Obstetrics and would like to work in a supportive environment then I would highly recommend Pioneer Health. Whilst at Pioneer I have had the opportunity to work under the close supervision of David and Carly. The obstetric team is well supported at Pioneer with midwives and a broad range of equipment. It is a busy team and with this comes a great opportunity to develop and consolidate obstetric skills and knowledge.”

Dr Richie Graham

"Supervisors and senior fellows are available, approachable and accessible. Pioneer Health Albany provides teaching for registrars three times a week in the form of formal teaching, tutorials and a question and answer time with supervisors. Topics discussed in teaching sessions are relevant and applicable to everyday cases. Non-medical support staff have always been extremely helpful. I feel very well-assisted in my daily tasks and have found non-clinical staff both essential and beneficial in my training as a registrar."
