GP Supervisor of the Year for SA and NT: Dr Will Staridas (BMBS ’08)
Congratulations to Dr Will Staridas who has been named GP Supervisor of the Year for SA and NT in the 2021 Royal Australian College of General Practitioners State Awards.
A general practitioner at Regency Medical Clinic in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, Dr Staridas has been supervising general practice registrars for the past four years.
“One of the biggest transitions a doctor in training can make is from hospital to general practice. It is a challenging move from a highly supervised hospital environment, to sitting alone in a room with a patient. I think it is very important to support junior doctors through that transition, and in the process help them to become a well rounded general practitioner,” says Dr Staridas.
Dr Staridas completed a Science degree with Honours in Physiology and Pharmacology before being undertaking the Flinders University Graduate Entry Medicine program. He feels that being more mature, and studying with a diverse range of students in this program helped him as a junior doctor. He also participated in the MD Rural Stream program during 3rd year in Victor Harbor, which also enhanced his medical skills.
State winners all now go into consideration for the national award which will be announced at the GP21 conference on Saturday 20 November 2021.
