A warm welcome to our new GP registrars – Dr Neil Mackay and Dr Borna Das, who joined our Moruya GP team on Monday, 1st February.
Having completed four years training in orthopaedics in far north Queensland, Dr Mackay completed 12 months of his 18 month GP training programme in Pambula last year and has joined us for his final training semester. Originally from Tasmania, Dr Mackay as decided to settle with his young family here in our Eurobodalla region.
Dr Das is embarking on her first six months of the training programme, after recently working as a Senior Resident Medical Officer (SRMO) in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital. Dr Das has held SRMO positions at other large Greater Sydney and WA hospitals and holds a Diploma of Child Health.
Queen Street Medical Centre is recognised as a leading, accredited GP training practice in NSW, attracting a record number of applications for this 2021 training year. Our GP registrars usually elect to complete at least 12 months of their 18 months training at our Moruya practice. However, to ensure a broad and diverse experience, the GP training programme stipulates GPs must train with at least two practices during their 18 month programme – the reason why we recently bid farewell to our popular GP registrar Dr Gareth Carroll. Having spent 2020 with us, Gareth must now complete his final training semester at another practice. Fortunately, many of our former GP registrars have settled permanently in our local area and remain with our practice.
