Philosophy We are committed to promoting health, well being and disease prevention with all patients. We do not discriminate in the provision of excellent care and aim to treat all patients with dignity and respect.
Training style Each registrar is allocated a supervisor from the practice and the teaching hours per week are a mix of formal and informal sessions. We consider observation to be an important teaching tool. Various methods are used in our teaching, we encourage videotaping, case presentation and use a one on one teaching in most instances. We are a teaching practice for the ANU Medical School, hosting students several times per year.

Demographic Area We are the only practice located in Eden, currently the population is around 5000 people with a larger number of patients being drawn from the outlying smaller communities. Patients range all ages and socio-economic groups with approximately ten percent being of Aboriginal descent. Eden is very much a working town with employment in the fishing and timber industrys most prominent. Tourism is playing a much larger role in more recent years. The population of Eden and the surrounding area increases dramatically during the summer and School holiday periods.
Community Eden has a local government primary school as well as a Catholic primary school. Eden Marine High is very well respected with a reputation for receiving very good results in the HSC. This High School is the primary High School for the southern part of the Sapphire Coast, providing education for students from Wolumla to the north, Wonboyn to the south and Wyndham to the West, as well as Merimbula and Pambula. They currently offer many Maritime based courses which are not traditionally offered in High Schools. There are also Catholic and Christian Primary and High Schools located 15 minutes to the north of Eden, in Pambula. Buses provide transport between all towns for students.
