Meet your Mentor – Dr Natasha Nottingham
I am a recent Fellow of the RACGP. My journey into GP training began during internship when, inspired by the diversity of general practice, I applied for the AGPT program. I thoroughly enjoyed all my internship rotations in the SALHN and realised that only general practice would allow me to utilise the skills I had learnt in each of these fields on a daily basis.
I developed a special interest in women’s health whilst undertaking a six-month obstetrics and gynaecology resident position at Flinders Medical Centre. Utilising this experience, I applied to the Obstetric Shared Care Program, and now deliver antenatal care to women in the community.
Prior to venturing out into community general practice training, I completed my Extended Skills Training in paediatrics and emergency medicine. I am now working in general practice in metropolitan Adelaide and part-time in medical education.
I was fortunate enough to have someone I could turn to with questions about general practice when I was as a pre-vocational doctor and I’m happy to do the same for others. I am very happy to discuss the advantage and opportunities within GP as well as the challenges of the profession.
