University of NSW Medical Students
On average, a student will be under his supervision for 4 weeks; approximately 3-3½ days per week.
The student will undertake a variety of activities at the practice to help them understand common general practice conditions, and should progress to more responsibilities and autonomy in clinical activities during the attachment.
The student will either sit in with Dr Kien during a consultation or, when deemed capable, consult a patient on his/her own before reporting to Dr Kien who will conclude the consultation.
Dr Kien and his students appreciate your generosity and patience during these teaching sessions. However, please do not hesitate to inform our reception if you do not wish to be involved in this program. It is totally understandable.
During this evolving COVID-19 period, Avoca Street Medical Centre advises all patients to self-isolate as much as possible. In particular we wish to protect the community's most vulnerable patients. We now offer bulk billed telephone consultations for all Medicare eligible patients whom have been seen at this practice in the past 4 years.
For patients who do not hold a valid Medicare card but have been seen at our practice in the past 4 years a pre-paid administration fee of $40 per 10 minute consultation will apply.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
