Cicily graduated from the Monash University medical school in 2001 and has been working at a small family practice in Melbourne's gorgeous Dandenong Ranges since 2007, where she enjoys the variety of medical presentations, the diversity of patients, and the privilege of getting to know individuals over the ups and downs of their lives.
Particular clinical interests include:
- mental health/illness and wellbeing;
- child and family health;
- evidence based medicine;
- preventative health - obesity;
- Aboriginal health;
and the development of rapport and empathy by clinicians.
Cicily has been a supervisor of GP registrars in practice for over 5 years.
Her work at Monash University began in 2007, starting as a tutor in the pre-clinical Problem Based Learning course. She has always enjoyed the way that medical education complements clinical work, and finds the students inspiring.
As well as commencing with the Department of General Practice this year as a tutor in the Year 4 GP program, Cicily will continue to oversee the PBL course in years 1 and 2 at Clayton, and will lead curriculum and assessment in Indigenous Health over the 5 year Medical course.
