Horsham College is one of the latest government secondary schools to receive funds for a general practitioner to attend the college.
The state Department of Education is funding the $43.8 million Doctors in Secondary Schools program.
Rolled out progressively across the state since 2017, the program aims to make primary health care accessible to students and reduce the pressure on working parents.
All secondary school students will be able to access an adolescent-health trained general practitioner, subject to providing the required parental or carer consent for the services.
There will be no out-of-pocket expenses for student consultations with the general practitioner.
A Horsham College spokesperson said that the program was important for students.
"It will help a lot of students who can't access medical help.
"Either there aren't doctors available or students find it hard to make appointments in a timely way and get continuity of care.
"This program will be a way for them to access that care if they need it," the spokesperson said.
The program's consent and confidentiality policy was developed in consultation with a number of parties, including the Australian Medical Association and the Australian Education Union.
Consistent with Australian common law, the program recognises that any student who wants to see the GP will be permitted to book an appointment, with the GP deciding whether the young person is mature enough to consent to medical treatment or whether parental or carer consent is needed.
This requirement is consistent with what occurs with GP appointments and care in the community.
The Doctors in Secondary Schools program will be taking its first appointments at Horsham College on Wednesday.
