Lachlan graduated from Newcastle Medical School, NSW in 2004. He trained at Orange Base, and Goulburn Psychiatric Hospitals before his beautiful wife convinced him to travel to New Zealand where he trained and worked as a GP at Te Kauwhata Health Centre.

During this six year period he worked in prison health, aged care, and established a high school clinic in the community working with Dr Geoffrey Knight. He worked as a Medical Educator for the RNZCGP for two years and supervised three GP Registrars. He has worked on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean Territories where he oversaw the Australian Government Immigration Detention Health Services as Area Medical Director in 2013, involving governance of clinical service delivery for primary, emergency, public health, maternity care and infectious disease control.

He has lived in Hobart the last four years while working as a GP Supervisor at The University of Tasmania Health Centre and as Director of Training at General Practice Training Tasmania. This role leads a medical education team of around 50 to provide executive input into the Australian GP Registrar training program.

He is the Chair of the Lead Medical Educator Committee of the RTO Network. He writes and standard sets the RACGP CAKKT written entry exam for GP training.

He is a Mentor in the RACGP Future Leaders program and Duke of Edinburgh Award, and a past volunteer NZ Firefighter and soccer coach. He is motivated by evidenced based compassionate policy in GP education and training that balances resources and need by exploring 'grey zones'. He also loves creative adventure pursuits and makes electronic music in his home studio to relax with his 13 and 15 year old sons. He hopes you might enjoy learning about enhancing educational teams.


Hamish Wilson

Associate Professor Hamish Wilson graduated from Otago Medical School in 1978, but found that clinical practice was quite different to what he was expecting. He convenes the 'Nature of Medical Practice,' one of several popular postgraduate courses from Otago University for practicing GPs. Since 2008, he has also helped to re-design the undergraduate curriculum for pre-clinical students, providing them with innovative community-based learning opportunities.

With Dr Wayne Cunningham, he co-authored Being a Doctor: Understanding Medical Practice (University of Otago Press, 2013), a textbook that addresses gaps between medical theory and the reality of clinical practice. He has also researched and published on patients' experiences of health care, the doctor patient relationship, the impact of complaints on doctors equanimity, and student resilience.
