I really enjoy this rotation, which is a mix of hospital and clinic stuffs. And I actually have more hands on experiences than when I was in a metro hospital.

This was a wonderful placement. I'll miss the doctors here and their teaching sessions. 

It was a fantastic placement and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good feedback regarding Case discussion from preceptor. Excellent teaching at GP site. Great timetable with mix of GP, Hospital and QAS.
