The medical centre has a long history as a teaching practice, providing guidance and supervision to registrars in the final stages of their GP training and visiting medical students. We have created a dedicated learning centre with a library of medical resources and regular training and information sessions for doctors and students alike.
We also encourage an atmosphere of shared learning between the medical centre staff and our allied health professionals, giving both experienced doctors and students the opportunity to discover how complementary practices can be integrated into a patient’s overall treatment plan.
We believe that our practice is able to provide a higher quality of health care for our patients through our ongoing commitment to medical education and our holistic approach to patient health.
The Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Centre is also home to the Australian College of Kahuna Sciences, a registered training organisation that delivers Certificate IV courses in Kahuna Bodywork, along with specific training modules such as First Aid and infection control.
Originally founded as the Mullumbimby Medical Centre in 1987 by Dr. Norbert Weber and his wife Ki’a’i, Mullumbimby Comprehensive Health Centre had holistic principles at the heart of its general practice right from the very start.
It was founded on the site of Mullumbimby’s very first medical practice, which was run by Dr. Alderman. He established a purpose built surgery on land where an old cattle yard had been in the late 1940’s, practicing downstairs and living upstairs.
The Weber family purchased and fully renovated Dr. Alderman’s building and founded the Mullumbimby Medical Centre, moving to the current premises in 1992. They have since added the old original chemist’s residence next door to the building via an enclosed walkway. This is home to QML pathology and the Mullumbimby Skin Clinic. The addition of the new allied health centre at the front of the original surgery now completes the picture.
