  • Dr Catherine Swanson MBBS, FRACGP, M. Public Health

    Dr Catherine Swanson

    As the original doctors have became busier and harder to get into see Highgate Hill Doctors have been searching for two new doctors who fit the practice ethos. Catherine has been a great fit and warmly welcomed here by the patients.


    Catherine joined the practice in late 2019 and has worked as a GP since 1999. She is a strong believer in the power of General Practice and relishes the chance to change the world one patient at a time.  She utilizes her extensive experience in medicine by teaching Med Students, training GPs and is an examiner for College of GPs.

    Catherine’s search for knowledge goes on and she often fires up the lunch time case discussions here at Highgate Hill Doctors.

    Catherine studied Medicine at the University of Queensland and completed her GP training in Cairns where she lived for ten years. She also has a Masters of Public Health!

    Special Interests

    She originally was drawn to orthopaedics but broadened out into a love for General Practice. She also spends one day a week as a GP in orthopaedics at Prince Charles Hospital.

    Her other interests are skin cancer prevention detection and excision. She has done extra training in minor skin surgery.

    Our practice has a special interest in ears and is kitted out with the latest ear microscopes for ear cleaning. Catherine has developed skills in this as well.

    Catherine’s Women’s Health and paediatric knowledge is well acknowledged in the practice and she is Aligned at the Mater Mothers Hospital for GP Maternity Shared care.

    Family Life

    Outside of work her time is filled with juggling family, dog, cat, and house renovation (does anyone know a good chippie?) while still finding time ride her bike and cheer her daughter on at netball.
