Dr Fleur Muirhead

17 May 2021

Dr Fleur Muirhead is the elected CWH/DRANZCOG trainee representative on the RANZCOG Trainees’ Committee.

My name is Fleur and I’m the newly elected CWH/DRANZCOG trainee representative on the RANZCOG Trainees’ Committee for the remainder of 2021. I feel honoured to have the opportunity to represent such a diverse, talented and passionate group of doctors with one common interest, Women’s Health. I come from a long line of nurse/midwives, so it came as no surprise to most that when I spent time in the birth suite as a student, I wanted to learn more.

My career path thus far has taken me all over Australia and I am excited to see where it goes to from here. I was born and raised in rural, North East Tasmania before moving across ‘The Strait’ to complete medical school at Monash University in Melbourne. As a rural stream student, I spent time in Bendigo, Mildura and Castlemaine before graduating in 2015 and moving to Townsville in north Queensland. I completed my internship and resident year there before stepping up to a Principal House Officer (PHO) in obstetrics and gynaecology in 2018. From there I spent a year as a rural PHO at the Proserpine Hospital, working mostly in the ED whilst still utilising my O&G training in the smaller birth suite there. In 2020 I relocated to Perth, Western Australia with my partner. There I completed another service registrar year and my Diploma, and commenced my DRANZCOG Advanced component. I have since relocated back to Queensland and am now completing my DRANZCOG Advanced in the Logan Hospital.

I look forward to representing the other CWH/DRANZCOG trainees to the best of my ability; those planning on GP obstetrics, rural generalist, ED with a special interest, prospective O&G trainees and those from other specialties with an interest in Women’s Health care. My email is always open, I would love to hear from you, and I strongly encourage you to get in touch.
