Frequently Asked Questions
What is an online doctor?
An online doctor, also known as a virtual doctor, is a registed medical professional who provides medical consultations through the internet or over the phone. Online doctors can provide medical advice, initial care and prescriptions. They are becoming increasingly popular due to the convenience and accessibility they offer. Patients can consult with online doctors from the comfort of their own homes, eliminating the need to physically visit a doctor’s office. Online doctors may use video conferencing technology to communicate with patients, but they may also communicate through phone calls, text messages, and email. Online doctors do not replace your regular local GP who should be your first point of call, but they can be a safe and convenient way to get help in between appointments with your regular GP.
What are the education and training requirements for online doctors?
Online doctors are fully registered medical practitioners with the Australian Health Pracititioner Regulation Agency. This means they have undertaken extensive undergraduate training at accreditated medical schools and years of post graduate experience as doctors in the hospital system.
