This is a busy 70 bed hospital in the busy town of Busselton, which has a population of 15,000 and students will spend their time split between this hospital and the local Margaret River hospital during their elective. It offers medical and surgical services, in addition to a busy Emergency Department and an obstetrics unit. The hospital has a variety of well-appointed facilities, including an Emergency Department and two theatres; there are also a variety of specialists who visit regularly. Students also have the opportunity to obtain experience providing health services to the local indigenous communities at the Manjimup and Collie Aboriginal Health Services and it is recommended that students select an option placement which will provide them with additional exposure to Aboriginal medical care. The hospital also offers several community health programmes.
The town of Busselton has been voted Western Australia’s top tourist town three times, with its beautiful coastal location and many tourist attractions. As a rural placement, enquiries about this elective should initially be placed through the Rural Clinical School of Western Australia (RCSWA). The RCSWA will enquire at the hospital, and others in rural WA, regarding the opportunity of a placement. There is a faculty fee for this process that will be determined with the University of Western Australia.
