About Dr Casey Parker

Hi, I am Dr Casey Parker – author of the Broome Docs blog.

I am a GP working in Broome, NW of Western Australia.  I work as a hospital DMO (District Med Officer) doing Emergency, Anaesthestics, some Obstetrics and a lot of miscellaneous primary care.

I am also employed as a clinical teacher for the Rural Clinical School of UWA / Notre Dame.  I have been teaching Paediatrics to Med Students for the past 7 years.

I consider myself to be a generalist – I work in a place where there are no departments and we have to be able to manage all comers.  This creates the problem of being a “jack of all trades and master of none”.  The motivation behind this site is to try and keep myself (and maybe you) up to date with best clinical practice in the remote and rural parts of the country.  I do not see why our patients should receive inferior medical care as a function of geography… at least my knowledge and training should not be the cause of inferior care.

I hope to update this blog as often as I can to keep my own neurons firing and keep my student’s busy!
