Medical Education & Training Leadership Team
Our Educators Executive Leadership Team provides leadership and management of the company’s medical education and training programs. This leadership team includes the Director of Medical Education and Acting Deputy Director of Medical Education (see above) and the following Corporate and District Medical Educators:
Dr Scott Preston – Lead Medical Educator – Education
Scott Preston has been a GP at Camp Hill in the south of Brisbane for the past eight years. He both practices and teaches there as a medical educator. When he was a registrar, he worked in western Queensland and quickly developed a love of rural medicine. He was also fortunate to have the support of some excellent GP supervisors while on rural training. This inspired him to take up his current role as a GPTQ medical educator.
Dr Mike Hurley – Lead Medical Educator – Rural
Dr Mike Hurley is a GP specialising in anaesthetics and emergency with a special interest in rural. His decision to become a rural GP was cemented by his experience of rural rotations in Stanthorpe, Queensland and Gove, Northern Territory.
Dr Amelia Duhs – Lead Medical Educator – Training
Dr Amelia Duhs completed a degree in pure maths and her postgraduate medicine qualification at the University of Queensland. She and her husband started their medical careers as interns in Toowoomba. This gave them a broader exposure to medicine and more independence than they felt they would have had in a metropolitan hospital. Amelia subsequently completed her GP Fellowship training and currently provides GP services at Spring Hill Medical Centre in Brisbane, in addition to her medical educator role with GPTQ. She has a keen interest in medical education and in women’s and mental health.
Dr Erin Waters – Lead Medical Educator – Supervisor
With special interests in family medicine and youth mental health, Brisbane-based GP Dr Erin Waters loves helping registrars and supervisors finesse their clinical reasoning skills.
