As a training practice, Theodore Medical has two University of Queensland medical students attached to the practice each academic year. As well as these students, other medical students from other Australian and overseas universities enjoy time attached to this practice. Notices will advise you of a student's presence and your permission for them to be a part of your consultation is requested. If this situation is unacceptable to you, please fell free to decline the offer of their presence.
Keeping abreast of technology, Theodore Medical is a fully computerised surgery using Medical Director as the clinical software and Pracsoft for administration. A self-check-in kiosk (similar to those used in airports) is available for patients to alert staff of attendance and to update contact details. The practice has two servers managing patient records and follows strict protocols to ensure this information is secure.
