Dr Colby will be off on maternity leave from 11th October 2019 and returning 13th July 2020.
Dr Sarah Colby started at the Glen Forrest Medical Centre in January 2019.
After travelling the world for a year after high school, Sarah initially completed a degree in exercise and health science, specialising in exercise rehabilitation before moving into medicine at UWA.
She welcomed the opportunity to spend a year of medical school working in Kununurra expanding her skills in a different environment, where she was also able to enjoy the lifestyle of camping amongst the gorges, waterfalls and bushland.
Graduating in 2013, Sarah worked in many different areas of medicine and surgery in the hospitals around Perth before entering into general practice training.
Sarah was fortunate to have enjoyed six months at King Edward Memorial Hospital where she completed a Diploma in Women’s Health on the background of a keen interest in women’s health, antenatal care and sexual health.
Outside work, Sarah loves travelling, camping and participating in triathlons.
Dr Colby also works Saturday mornings on a roster basis.
