Staff Bio

Peter is from the Wiradjuri people of NSW. Peter has worked with the Tobwabba Aboriginal Medical Service since 2002, and describes himself as an Aboriginal man who loves being a doctor. Peter loves working one on one with his patients and finds a source of satisfaction in the knowledge that, in his own small way, the work that he does contributes toward closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health outcomes. In 2008, Peter pursued his other passion – making good doctors – and took on the position of Associate Professor, Indigenous Medical Education and Head of Discipline, Indigenous Health at Newcastle University. Peter has been a member of the AIDA Board for 8 years and President from 2009-2012.
