Enjoying a varied workday, Melbourne
Dr Erin Gordon values the diversity in her day, being that no two are the same. General practice allows Erin the opportunity to spread her wings and try different things and face varied challenges every day.
As a medical student and during her second-year hospital training, Erin worked in the Northern Territory, where the remote area nurses and GPs made the greatest impact on her choice to specialise in general practice.
Now, Erin regularly travels to far western Victoria with the Royal Flying Doctors Service to run a clinic specifically for women and children to access a GP.
Early in her career as a GP, Erin realised that what she loved most about general practice was the continuing relationship with her patients and treating the whole person, not just the disease.
"I really like to be challenged on a day-to-day basis and to try my hand at lots of different things. I think the cornerstone of being a good general practitioner and a really good health professional, is developing trust with your patients."
Erin applies her teachings and skills to anybody who would most benefit from it by working with people with substance abuse and mental health issues, in refugee health, and on improving access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.
A typical day in general practice provides Erin with the ability to apply clinical knowledge within a vast spectrum, to create rapport and sustain relationships with people, and to be entrusted with information that they may not have even told their nearest loved ones.
