Our approach to medical care at AWAHS:
In an age where specialization is becoming more common, believe that there remains a vital space for the generalist. The narrow focus of specialty care is not suited to the complexities of indigenous health issues that inevitably cross boundaries between each specialty area. That is not to say that detailed, informed and skilled care is not required. On the contrary, indigenous health requires a great depth of knowledge and application, it is just that this may not be useful if it comes in narrow silos of expertise.
The background of our medical team is in rural health, with Dr. Asaduzzaman and Dr. Giddings bringing over 30 years of experience. Dr. Goodwin currently practices in Yackandandah as well as in Albury and focuses primarily on obstetrics. With Dr. Anu specializing in addiction medicines. We also invite GP registrars in training to do their training with AWAHS each year in conjunction with our regional GP training provider, Murray City Country Coast (MCCC) GP Training.
