Dr Siobhain Brennan
Dr Brennan received her Fellowship with the RACGP in October 2017, having completed her medical degree as a mature entry student through UWA in 2012.
Prior to applying for medicine, Dr Brennan was a published research scientist in the clinical field of cystic fibrosis, having been a founding member of the successful AREST CF team. During that time, she ran a small research team and learned how to manage teams, governance of budgets and reporting systems and supervision of staff and students.
In 2008, Dr Brennan chose to pursue medicine as she had found herself increasingly passionate about patient health and advocacy. After her junior doctor training, she was naturally attracted to General Practice. Dr Brennan remains a passionate advocate of patient-centred care, practicing at Glen Forrest Medical Centre, where she has also mentored medical students over the last two years. Whilst in an urban area, Glen Forrest sits near the border of the Wheatbelt and as such she is familiar with the challenges faced in health care of rural communities.
Dr Brennan also holds the role of part time hospital GP liaison doctor. In that role, she has represented the interests of Midland / East Metro GPs on hospital executive committees, WAPHA Hospital Liaison committees and contributed to GP focussed educational events.
