Doug Blomeley - Psychiatrist

I am a specialist psychiatrist who has lived and trained exclusively in rural areas. My clinical interests encompass a variety of areas and include particular passion for eating/body image disorders, with further strong interests in neuropsychiatry, psychogeriatrics and medical comorbidity, in addition to behavioural intelligence and situational awareness in hostile/unpredictable environments.

With regard to my academic appointments, I am a senior lecturer and topic lead in Mental Health for both Geelong and Rural community clinical schools - Deakin University School of Medicine; I am passionate about medical education and professional development.

I have a particular interest in rural/regional/remote mental health, including the improvement of access to mental health care for those living in such areas. I am keen on contributing to the education of students of all disciplines within health settings, and hope to continue to encourage medical students, interns, and junior doctors to pursue a career in psychiatry.

Lastly, over the previous 12 years I have endeavoured to contribute to our local community through volunteering with St John Ambulance, conducting this role in more recent years as a divisional medical officer, delivering pre-hospital advanced life support and advanced first responder capabilities at major local and state level public and private events.
