CAREER OVERVIEW

A medical professional with 11 years post-graduate experience, I have worked within several major teaching hospitals in Adelaide, South Australia, as an Internist, Resident and Registrar. I initially worked primarily within the fields of Surgery, Emergency Medicine and Trauma Care. I also have six years experience in Private General Practice. I have a proven track record of providing the highest quality of care to all my patients, and also supporting the development of junior doctors working with me, recognizing their specific learning needs. I have a committed ethical standard of work, being a team player and recognize the valuable inter-relationship that all health care professionals have in the health care team. I moved back to Mount Gambier for the experience of rural general practice and to provide my children with the benefits of growing up in a rural community. I have developed a special interest in skin cancer medicine and undertaken further studies in skin cancer management. I perform many minor procedures at my current medical rooms, bypassing the need for most patients to have hospital day surgery. My future goals are to expand on this success, further develop my skills in the area of minor surgery and skin cancer medicine whilst maintaining my skills in all other aspects of Primary Care General Practice.
