GPTT GP Supervisior, Dr Jane Hampson, of Mowbray Medical, has been named the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Tasmanian GP Supervisor of 2019.
For Dr Jane Hampson, getting to know families and offering ongoing support is one of the main reasons she loves being a community general practitioner.
The other reason is her passion for teaching – including her work training the next generation of Tasmanian doctors to become GPs.
It is this commitment that’s seen her named the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners Tasmanian GP Supervisor of 2019.
As the only registered GP supervisor at the Mowbray Medical, which she opened in 2014, Dr Hampson said it was an honour and a surprise to be recognised.
“It was very much a surprise. I didn’t know anything about it until it came out,” she said. “Being nominated was a shock, let alone winning the award.”
Dr Hampson moved to Tasmania from England with her husband and two children in 2009.
After a few years working in Scottsdale and Bridport, she moved to Mowbray full time where she has since helped train six doctors, with another two currently under her guidance.
