RDWA Keynote Speech

Delivered on the 24th May to the 2013 RDWA Conference. First time I had to speak for 30 mins!

“Gerry grew up for 22 years in the outer suburbs of a small Victorian town called Melbourne. So how was it that this ‘city boy’ ended up undertaking GP training and wanting to work in rural South Australia? Was it family heritage in the bush, inspiring placements, the lure of aviation or all three? Surely they will find out he barracks for Collingwood sooner or later….”


  • Ah Gerry you are such a fantastic speaker and great role model for up an coming future GPs. Absolutely excellent presentation. Well done!!

  • Great talk Gerry. There are so many similarities to rural practice between Scotland and Australia, we often look over to see what’s happening and this is inspirational stuff for our students here too.

    Keep up the good work!
