We also have certificates ‘ln-Progress’ and a wealth of other experience and qualifications in other handy subjects such as Behaviour, Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture.

The successful candidate will have several years of post-graduation experience including experience in internal medicine and be able to perform complex abdominal ultrasound and basic echocardiography. You will be organised, be a good communicator with both clients and colleagues and be able and willing to perform GP work including consultations and surgery.
