The Doctors in Schools Program aims to provide health care and medical advice to those in need.
The objectives of the program are to make primary health care more accessible to students; provide assistance to young people to identify and address any health problems early; and reduce the pressure on working parents. As part of the program, Kurnai has been assigned a Doctor and Practice Nurse for half a day per week.
They are located at the Morwell campus in a specially designed and renovated space located next to the gym. Students can access free and confidential medical advice and health support from the doctor and can arrange appointments through the Student Welfare Officer or directly with the Practice Nurse. Appointments can be utilised for any medical and health care need including but not limited to mental, physical and sexual health.
