Dr Parker Magin, University of Newcastle
I am a general practitioner in Newcastle, Australia, who commenced an academic career through part-time teaching of medical undergraduates in 1998. I have since become involved in research and my main research interests are the psychological effects of skin disease (the subject of my PhD), occupational violence in general practice, stroke and TIA management in primary care, and the in-practice educational experience of GP registrars. In research projects in these areas I have utilised both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. I completed a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Epidemiology in 2002, prior to commencing a PhD which I completed in 2006.
My current positions are:
