Rachael studied medicine at the University of Tasmania before training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The Royal Women’s Hospital and Mercy Hospital for Women, Melbourne. She also undertook further study in the form of research for a Doctorate of Medicine at Melbourne University (a higher degree held by very few gynaecologists in Melbourne) and three years of sub-specialty training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Rachael furthered her expertise in infertility with two years working in the United Kingdom at the renowned Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine and Southmead Hospital.
Rachael is a Consultant Gynaecologist and Infertility Specialist. She has previously been head of the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Clinic at The Women’s Hospital and held responsibility for the infertility management of patients attending the Chronic Viral Illness clinic also located at The Women’s Hospital. Rachael has been working in IVF since 1999 and remains actively involved in clinical research hoping to reduce the burden of fertility treatment upon her patients.
