Given the sprawling size of the Bundoora Campus, it’s no surprise that many of the best University services sometimes go under the radar. For example, did you know there is a doctor clinic on campus?
The doctor, or general practitioner, is usually the first person you would see if you are unwell or looking for health advice. They can help you with a whole bunch of things – here are a few reasons you might want to make an appointment:
When to visit the doctor
Mental health support and referrals
Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? It happens to most of us at one time or another. If you’re not feeling yourself and need some support your doctor can give you a referral to mental health professionals who can help you out.
Sexual and reproductive health information and advice
The La Trobe University Medical Centre GP Clinic have doctors who specialise in men’s health, women’s health and reproductive health.
Check-ups and health screening
Staying on top of your health is important. Regular health checks and recommended health screening help you do that. Our doctors can help with skin checks, cervical screening and more.
You’re just feeling unwell
Don’t battle through – if you’re feeling unwell or you are experiencing pain, seek medical advice. Your GP can diagnose and treat short-term illnesses like the flu or a fever. They can also assess injuries and help with medication reviews and management. If you need so see a specialist your doctor will provide a referral.
Vaccines and immunisations
