Work

Maffra Medical Group

My full title, which I'll save for this page down the back, is Dr Stuart Anderson, MBBS (hons), FRACGP, FARGP, FACCO, DipACSCM.

I live and work as a GP in Maffra, a small community in Central Gippsland, Victoria, at Maffra Medical Group.

I graduated from Monash University in 2001 and then undertook General Practice training with SGPT in Gippsland. At the completion of my training I settled in Maffra where my (life) partner and I are (professional) partners in our practice. 

I have developed a strong interest in Skin Cancer Medicine during my training and early career, culminating in attainment of the Fellowship of the Australian College of Cutaneous Oncology in 2013. My current week is about an even split of minor surgery, skin cancer consults, general practice and on-call work.

In addition to patient care, I have an interest in medical education. I work as a Medical Educator with EVGPT, teaching GP Registrars, and as a lecturer with Monash University teaching medical students.
