Working at Hill Medical Services has been an excellent starting point in my GP registrar training. The supervisors and other doctors, nurses and administrative staff are all very available and approachable, and full of practical knowledge and advice. There is a strong focus on teaching, both formal and informal. The patient demographic is truly varied and often presents challenges which will test and definitely improve your skills as a doctor.

HMS great teaching environment that would be appropriate for any level of training. I had my GPT 1 placement with HMS and found all the staff to be extremely helpful and teaching orientated. The consult and treatment rooms are well equipped, organized and hygienic. The patient demographic is varied and there is a great spread of exposure to various medical conditions. The teaching program is excellent with weekly clinical meetings, approachable supervisors facilitating informal teaching and weekly structured formal teachings run by either supervisors or visiting specialists. With the accompanying registrars there is great peer support as well. Overall it is a clinic I would readily recommend to anyone.
I completed my GPT2 rotation at Hill Medical Services and had a fantastic experience at the clinic. There is a supportive and friendly culture amongst all staff at Hill Medical Services which makes it a great place to learn. The main supervisors Dr Dawood and Dr Ghaly are very supportive, approachable and always make themselves available to assist at any time. They also provide weekly structured teaching on a range of topics tailored to registrar preferences which I found very useful. The patient population is diverse and varied, giving a good mix of complex cases and learning opportunities for registrars. I would highly recommend Hill Medical Services to all prospective registrars.
My experience at HMS was excellent. Despite the difficulties of starting at the height of the pandemic, I quickly became comfortable there. There was no pressure to see more patients per hour until I was comfortable. Accessible, knowledgeable, and supportive supervisors & nursing staff. Good experience with refugees and people from NESB.
Hill Medical Services is a wonderful place to work with friendly and supportive supervisors and a strong team culture. Registrars have the opportunity to see and manage a wide variety of presentations and every day is different and interesting. Hill Medical Services offers a well organised and smooth program for registrars with a strong focus on teaching. All the staff including other doctors, nurses, allied health and reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I feel very lucky to have been part of the team at Hill Medical Services and would highly recommend this practice to future registrars at any level of training.
I am really happy that I came to Hill Medical for GPT1. I can’t comment on what GP training is usually like normally, but I can definitely attest to the support and care that we were given as registrars during Covid-19. I always felt as though my concerns and safety were taken into account. The supervisors and the rest of the GPs are all lovely and approachable – I was never made to feel as though I couldn’t ask for help. There is a wide variety of patient demographics and presentations. Overall, it is really a lovely working environment to be in (the practice manager, receptionists, nurses and allied health included).
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Hill Medical Services and would highly recommend the clinic to other registrars. I felt very well supported by the whole team. Admin are well organised, efficient and always happy to help. The support from nursing staff was exceptional particularly during the changing environment due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The supervision you receive is excellent, Dr Dawood and Dr Ghaly are fantastic GP’s who are very approachable and available for advice at any time.
Working at Hill Medical Services as GPT3 registrar was a fantastic experience. I worked there as part of the composite position with Bunurong Health Services in Dandenong. Under the guidance of Dr Dawood and Dr Ghaly, I always felt well supported and was provided great supervision. They were always available to discuss cases when I required, and quick to assist if I ever needed. Hill Medical is a well organised and efficient clinic, and the staff are friendly, helpful and approachable at all times. I was exposed to a broad patient population, along with some complex cases, however this added to the experience and really made me feel that I was experiencing the diversity that General Practice can offer. I would highly recommend this practice to any prospective registrar.
I thoroughly enjoyed my term with Hill Medical Services. As a GPT1 I was nervous about starting as a GP trainee, but the supervisors, other GPs, nurses and admin staff were all so welcoming and friendly that it was an easy transition. Everyone was always happy to assist if needed. Many of my patients were interesting or complex cases, which has given me more confidence managing these patients. The variety of patients and conditions has been wonderful for my learning and I was never bored! It was also great to have some other registrars there for some peer support. I would definitely recommend HMS as a supportive clinic with excellent learning opportunities for any GP trainee.
Hill Medical Services was amazing experience. The supervision and teaching here are superb, I always felt supported and was able to discuss and clarify my questions fully. The supervisors, as well as all the doctors at this practice, were always happy to answer any questions. Teaching was well-structured with occasional visiting specialists which were helpful. In general, the practice is very organised and well-run with an easy-going vibe at the same time. It is not often that you see a bulk-billing clinic that strives to provide such high quality care to its patients. I would definitely recommend this practice to registrars for an unparalleled learning experience and much more.
HMS is a delightful place to work. As a junior registrar, I felt that I was a welcomed addition to the practice, felt supported and encouraged to learn as well as to ask lots of questions. Supervision and access to a supervisors (Dr Fouad and Dr Tereza) was available around the clock. Teaching is superb and flexible to meet registrar needs and cases. In general, a place Id recommend for registrars and I would definitely love to come back to and work in the future.
Mary-Ann hs now returned to work to Hill Medical Services after completing her training.
Hill Medical Services is an amazing place to work at, for the following reasons:
1) Exceptional supervisors & doctors – who are not only highly competent clinicians but who also genuinely care deeply for their patients and families. They are always approachable and actually enjoy teaching which makes for a productive learning environment.
2) Great staff – the administrative & reception staff, allied health, nursing and medical staff all make you feel like you are a member of the family and are resourceful, friendly and helpful.
3) Interesting & varied patients – a great clientele mix, including paediatrics, geriatrics, acute & chronic medicine, minor surgical procedures, family planning, dermatology, ophthalmology, ENT, refugee health, drugs & alcohol, and mental health.
4) Fantastic peer support – working with other registrars on-site makes work fun, safe and enjoyable.
All in all, a great practice that I really enjoyed working at and would love to return to one day!
I did my GPT3 term at Hill Medical and had a great time there! I saw patients from many different cultures which was an incredibly enriching experience, and one that I had not experienced elsewhere. I looked after patients from all ages, and so had the chance to manage not only acute medical issues but also become more familiar with managing the more complex patients with chronic conditions. I was very well supported by not just my two supervisors at the clinic, but also by all the other doctors at the clinic who were all very approachable and keen to teach. I also found the nursing and reception staff to be fantastic and would certainly go out of their way to help me as much as they could to make my day as smooth as possible. All in all, it is a great teaching clinic, and I have been fortunate to have done a 6 month term there.
Carmen is now a permanent GP here at Hill Medical Services.
Working at Hill Medical Services in Noble Park was a great learning experience and so much fun. The entire staff were accommodating and supportive during my time there and there was a great team dynamic. Rarely, do you have such an environment at a bulk billing clinic where there is such a commitment to good quality medical care and patient centred medicine. I definitely plan on coming back!
Aaron is planning to join Hill Medical Services as a permanent GP in November 2016!
I was fortunate to undertake my GPT1 part time for a year at HMS. It is the kind of practice where you can feel at home right from the beginning and considering the registrar years are such a steep learning curve that support is tantamount. At Hill Medical you work as part of a team which is so important as a large number of our patients have complex health problems and additional supports are needed for them to participate fully in the healthcare system. There was a good opportunity to develop a patient base so that the work entails both acute and chronic presentations. I really enjoyed our teaching sessions as they allowed discussions of cases as well as didactic teaching and also provided an opportunity to debrief on the medicine conducted within the walls and engage in discussions on health and medicine in the wider community and in the media. Having allied health present was very helpful for my patients but also for my learning with staff happy to help with questions. During my time at HMS I have developed my knowledge and skills as a doctor and there is no limit to the breadth: diagnosing appendicitis; managing depression; treating diabetes; arranging travel vaccinations; undertaking cancer surveillance in patients with hepatitis B; identifying melanoma; supporting preventative health activities; introducing different contraceptives; eradicating scabies; teaching progressive muscle relaxation - and then it is time to go home and get ready for the next day. Sometimes it is really nice to get to reassure a patient with a cold!
Alyson has returned to work at Hill Medical Services!
During my time at Hill Medical Services during a PGPPP rotation (GP Resident), I felt very welcome working with the staff and other GPs there as well as part of the Hill family. Everyone was genuinely friendly and went out of their way to help out and I was impressed with their level of enthusiasm and professionalism. I was able to experience first hand the great relationship that Hill Medical had with their patients over the many years they have been open and is now an essential community institution.
I had the pleasure to spend both of my GPT1 and GPT2 at Hill Medical Services and would highly recommend this practice to any registrar.
Hill MedicalServices provided a fantastic medical infrastructure but maintained a family-orientated environment with firm support from medical, nursing and administrative stuff. On a personal level, I am grateful how the practice allowed me to learn and develop to my potential yet indulge in my personal interests outside of work - a GPs dream!
The fascinating demographic of Noble Park provided a large spectrum of medical cases and experiences that you would struggle to find in many other areas.
My supervisors provided me with outstanding support and in my opinion still remain an example of what good clinicians should be like.
I spent a terrific year at Hill Medical Services and would strongly encourage other registrars to come here for a placement!
