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.
