Dr Gerard Considine
BBioMedSci (Hons); BMBS; FRACGP; DCH
Dr Gerry Considine joined the Clare Medical Centre in early 2015 after working the previous year across the eastern Eyre Peninsula. He completed his GP training training in Wudinna, Jamestown, Quorn and Hahndorf.
Dr. Considine is the president of the Rural Doctors Association of South Australia and is an advocate for rural doctors and patients across the state. This means many teleconferences, occasional meetings with the Health Minister and regular local radio interviews.
In the clinic, Gerry has an interest in all aspects of rural general practice especially men’s health, skin cancer surgery, child health and musculoskeletal medicine. He is completing a Master of Medicine in Skin Cancer via University of Queensland.
As a pilot, Gerry occasionally flies to remote towns to relieve solo doctors and does the odd locum for the Royal Flying Doctors in Port Augusta.
During his time off, he can be found eating lamingtons cooked by his wife Mel Considine, then on the Reisling Trail attempting burning off calories by long distance running.
