Magdalena Simonis

Lecturer, General Practice and Primary Health Care Academic Centre, University of Melbourne

Magdalena is a Fellow of The Royal College of General Practitioners, also holds a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Her career objectives include a commitment to disease prevention and empowerment of migrant men and women.

Her interests include Medical Advocacy and Medical Ethics. She is on the committee of the Victorian Medical Women’s Society and The Greek Conference Organisation. The latter raises funds for the Murdoch children’s Research Institute. Magdalena is also a member of the Victoria Medico-Legal Society.

As an Australian born of Greek migrant parents, who works in full time General Practice, Magdalena is keenly aware of the ongoing need to bridge gaps between our expansive Greek community and the social and support services that either are available or need to be created to deliver the standard of care and support that are increasingly needed as the population ages and family structure along with socio-cultural dynamics change.
