Nuriootpa Medical Centre is proud to be associated with the Barossa Valley Parallel Rurual Ccommunity Curriculum, a collaboration between Flinders University and Adelaide University. The PRCC provides undergraduate medical students with a full year of clinical training. Each year 2 of these students come to Nuriootpa Medical Centre, and train under the close direction of the doctors. We hope that in addition to giving the medical students excellent exposure to general practice medicine and surgery that it also may inspire them to one day return to the country as rural doctors

My name is Casey Donehue, I am 23 years old from the University of Adelaide and am emailing to introduce myself as I have been placed at your practice for my rural 5th year placement.
A bit about me,
I am originally from Mount Gambier and love the country lifestyle. I am moving to Nuriootpa with my fiancé, and we are both looking forward to joining the local football/netball club. I also love running, reading books, and watching Netflix.
I’m very excited for what 2021 holds, and keen to meet everyone soon.
