Dr Anthony Weller - ATUNE Health Centres - General Practitioner
My name is Anthony Weller, I’m a registered medical practitioner, and gained my Fellowship in the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners back in 2012.
I completed my studies in Newcastle, along with my initial years in medicine. I then moved to Far North West Victoria, working in General Practice, working in Mildura. This is an area often experiencing workforce shortages. Working with the lovely people there, I have developed various skills in more complex disease management, and minor procedures, to help share the load.
After completing my Fellowship, I decided to focus on giving back to my profession, and help train medical students. I took on some teaching with Monash University’s Rural Health Mildura Campus. I subsequently accepted a position as Senior Lecturer and Academic co-ordinator from 2014, teaching across the clinical years, and helping to organise and support the busy Year 4 program in particular.
Additionally, from 2016 I have had the opportunity to teach and assess General Practice Registrars as a Medical Educator with MCCC (Murray City Country Coast). This also involved behind the scenes registrar and supervisor support.
I enjoy all aspects of medicine, especially preventative care and managing chronic disease. I love working across all age groups. Working at ATUNE allows me to really focus on delivering the kind of holistic, integrated care that I think is so vital and beneficial to both patient and health professional alike.
I have a beautiful wife Tam, and 4 children. Outside of medicine I enjoy walking, fishing, reading, and music. I have always been an active member in my community, and have had the privilege of serving in different ways in the past, including in my church, and as a board member and chairperson of my children’s previous school.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve here also. We are excited to be returning to Newcastle and look forward to partnering with you in achieving good health outcomes!
