MBBS, FRACGP, DRANZCOG
Specialist General Practitioner
Interests: Women’s Health, Paediatrics, Travel Medicine and Skin Cancer and Minor Surgery
Joan graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1999 and undertook her residency years at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. She then moved to Northeast Victoria to obtain her General Practice Registration (Rural Pathway) and Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. During that time, she worked as a rural GP obstetrician and provided services to the nearby ski medical centre, local district hospital and general practice.
She returned to Melbourne and joined the team at Bluff Road in 2007. Since then, she has completed an Expert Certificate in Dermoscopy (skin cancer diagnosis) and currently works regularly as a surgical assistant at Cabrini Hospital.
Joan enjoys the breadth and diversity of patients and challenges encountered in primary healthcare as well as educating and empowering oneself to respect their own health and well-being. She wishes she could travel and ski more but for now, enjoys spending time with her family and friends, the Arts and boxing.
