Biography

Dr Ron Grant has been a part-time Senior Lecturer in the School of Rural Medicine at the University of New England since 2013. He currently tutors medical students in years 2 & 3, primarily in Problem Based Learning tutorials, having previously performed the same task when the School of Rural Medicine was first established within the Joint Medical Program in 2008 & 2009. He also teaches clinical skills to years 1, 2 & 3. He is a retired General Practitioner, having been a hospital based doctor from 1979-86 and again from 1996-98, as well as a GP in Armidale from 1986-95 & 1998-2013, with a stint from 1995-96 with the Australian Antarctic Division at Davis Base, Antarctica. He has always claimed to be a clinician and so has not had time to publish book chapters or journal articles. Ron has helped supervise students in his work in General Practice over many years.  He has six wonderful adult children and ten very interesting grandchildren, which may help to explain the lack of publications.......
