Medical training

I undertook my undergraduate medical training in Riga which is the capital of Latvia, graduating in 2003. I moved to Australia in 2005 and worked as a doctor for 5 years before undertaking my GP training in Victoria, qualifying in 2014. I have done additional training in Palliative Care Medicine.

Areas of special interest

Palliative care

Work outside of Night Doctor

I work as a GP at Herdsman Medical Practice, Churchlands.

Interests outside of medicine

Family

Why a home visit doctor?

By working as an after hours GP, I get exposed to more acute medicine than I get to see in my GP practice in the daytime.
