The Shepparton Medical Centre (SMC) was established in 2010, the first purpose-built, multidisciplinary teaching clinic in Australia, created to increase the quality and capacity of medical education in a rural setting.
Since its inception, SMC has been facilitating the wellbeing of our patients and students by focusing on patient-centred care and outstanding clinical education. We deliver approximately 40,000 services to patients each year and support the community in a number of ways including participating in the Doctors in Secondary Schools Program, servicing Residential Aged Care Facilities and contributing to primary care, impact research.
The SMC is linked with the University of Melbourne Medical School’s Department of Rural Health (DRH) which is based within the same building, providing professional health education and research training in a rural context to many parts of rural Victoria.
