A ‘Locum’ is a licensed family doctor who is replacing one of our own family doctors who are away for various reasons, such as maternity leave or illness.


Medical Student A ‘Medical Student’ is studying medicine, which takes 3-4 years. Before starting medical school, they have usually completed a university degree. If involved with your visit, they will see you, then the supervising family doctor will see you as well. 


Clerk A ‘Clerk’ is a medical student in her/his final year. They are working more independently, but a supervising doctor will always see you as well.
