Dr Vivin Thomas Mathew
Specialist GP

Dr Mathew has more than 20 years experience as a GP. Graduating from Christian Medical College (CMC) Ludhiana, India in 2000, he spent his early years serving in a mission hospital in rural India before migrating to Australia in 2004. Here he worked in the public hospital system in a variety of roles before joining the Joint Coal Board for CS Health as one of their panel doctors ensuring the health of the workers in the coal mines. After training in General Practice he was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of general Practice (FRACGP). He also has a Masters in Clinical Medicine (MClinMed) from the University of Newcastle with a focus on Leadership and Management. Outside of medicine he enjoys 80s Rock Music, Indian Classical Music and New Age Instrumental music. He is an amateur photographer and anardent technophile. He also loves exploring culture and cuisines through travel.

Dr Jenny McConnell
Specialist GP

Jenny was awarded Fellowship in 1999. She worked in regional Victoria until 2002 and has since worked in general practice in Melbourne. She has recent experience in traditional cradle-to-grave general practice, and in acute care in a tertiary hospital based clinic. She has worked for the RACGP since 2008, initially as a censor and since 2019 as National Clinical Lead - Assessment Operations and Committee Liaison. Her interest in medical education relates particularly to international medical graduates and the transition of Specialist IMGs as they become established in practice in Australia.

Jenny Ching-Min Huang

Dr Huang is a GP currently working in Geelong, regional Victoria. She moved to Australia from the UK at the end of 2019 and was in the first ‘batch’ of PEP Specialist Stream applicants. Connecting with others, and helping others to be connected to each other is important in Life. As an international medical graduate, she particularly feels that the support is so vital for this transition in learning to adjust to not another way of life, but also, working in another healthcare system. Her insights into the changes that one can face had also come from her own experience from moving from her birth country of Taiwan, to New Zealand at age 9, then to the UK to seek opportunities and university life. She also contributed to the PLAB examinations in the UK or international medical graduates there - the experience she gained from there was the root of her hope in supporting IMGs.
