After three years of being busy looking after her own babies, Dr Miranda Robinson is back and excited to be joining the vibrant group of female obstetricians who all have a philosophy of providing their patients with personalised and holistic care. Dr Robinson is joining with Dr Vicki Nott, Dr Fiona Cowell and Dr Vanessa King
We asked Dr Robinson to tell us about her obstetric career:
Just to give you some background, I graduated from Otago University in 1994 and after 2 years working at Christchurch Public Hospital emigrated to Australia in February 1997.
I began my training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Monash Medical Centre in 1999 with rotations to Dandenong, Box Hill and Bendigo Base Hospitals. I was fortunate enough to be awarded the Gold Medal in the Membership Exams in 2002 and to complete my final years at the Mercy Hospital for Women in 2003 and at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in England in 2004. It was here that I gained a great deal of Gynaecological experience in both Vaginal and Laparoscopic Surgery.
I currently hold public positions at both the Mercy and the Austin Hospitals in Heidelberg. At the Mercy I work in a General Obstetric unit and on Endo B Unit, which has a particular interest in menstrual disorders and minimally invasive surgery.
Since 2011 I have held the position of Medical Head of the Emergency Department at the Mercy.
I also work at the Austin on the Family Planning Unit, which also sees my consulting a small number of Adolescent Gynaecology patients.
Before having my two children I also worked in private practice for 5 years.
In my spare time I enjoy a good meal a good red and a good movie but most of all I enjoy time with my delightful 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son as well as my fabulous husband of course!
I look forward to assisting my patients with any queries and, especially in these early days, having the ability to see my patients at short notice.
