Good for gaining more experience in general practice. Good exposure to allied health- physio and psychology in-house was nice. I also had the opportunity to see pharmacy and podiatry which was interesting too.

The practice engaged and cared about its patients and it was excellent to experience a good example of great medicine.

Got to participate in a wide variety of activities including experiencing what allied health do.
