Would you like to join our team at Mt Barker South Medical Centre? We'd love to chat!

Mt Barker South Medical Centre is an AGPAL accredited practice that has served the local Mount Barker community for over 30 years. It is a family practice that prides itself on the delivery of high-quality, evidence-based patient care.

In 2019, Mt Barker South Medical Centre was fully renovated to refurbish the existing building. The clinic now offers three large consulting rooms with natural light, a large fully-equipped treatment room, on-site pathology, and ample parking for doctors, staff, and patients. The clinic is 290 metres from Mount Barker District Soldiers Hospital and is within walking distance to a supermarket, bakery, chicken shop, and gym, to name a few.

Mt Barker South Medical Centre is accredited by the RACGP Training Program to assist fully qualified doctors in the completion of their vocational registration. The clinic also supports medical student placement terms from both Flinders University and Adelaide University.

The town of Mount Barker is located an easy 30-minute drive from Adelaide’s CBD via the South Eastern Freeway and is home to 36,477 people. It is the largest town in the Adelaide Hills, and one of the fastest-growing areas in South Australia, with the population forecast to grow to 56,710 by 2036.

Opportunities for Nurses, Allied Health & Admin

High-quality primary health care cannot be delivered without the crucial input and dedication of nurses, allied health professionals, and administration staff.

Therefore, we ensure people in every level and every role have the opportunity for personal and professional success.

For example, we strongly encourage staff to look for opportunities. We back people to deliver new initiatives and reward them for their success. We believe in structured, professional development and always look to promote from within.
