Our latest Cardiology Registrar is Dr Melissa Fitzgerald. She grew up in West Gippsland and now lives in Melbourne.
She studied Medicine at Melbourne University and is now a doctor at The Alfred Hospital where she is currently a 1st year Royal Australasian College of Physicians Advanced Trainee in Acute and General Medicine.
Interests include travelling, paddle boarding the Murray River, and eating/drinking with family and friends. She loves dogs, and enjoys swimming, shopping and spending Tom’s money, reading, Pilates and music.
She has enjoyed her time at Mildura Cardiology so far and says “it provides excellent learning opportunities in cardiology, particularly with ECG’s and Echo’s. There is a broad base of medicine with interesting diagnoses and lovely patients.”
She added under duress “the Staff are amazingly welcoming and inclusive like you have your own little family here“.
Things that have impressed her about Mildura include the wineries, Fossey’s Gin Distillery, the people, the weather and the Murray River.
