Testimonials

Myall medical clinic and Dalby are/were very friendly to the presence of a medical student. The healthcare staff and people in and around town were willing and eager to interact with us both as patient's and in the wider community. I was based in Toowoomba, and after finding things to do in Dalby, I only made one trip back down mid-rotation.

Had a wonderful time doing my catch up RRM at Myall Medical Practice. It was a pleasure learning from all the doctors there with their immense experience and intricate local knowledge.
