Dr Lisa O’Rourke
After graduating from UWA in 1996 I gained valuable experience at Fremantle Hospital, Murdoch ICU and Princess Margaret Hospital. I have also worked in Joondalup Hospital, the Mount Hospital and Busselton Hospital in the areas of Emergency, Coronary care and Paediatrics for over 5 years collectively.
I realised my passion for General Practice and gained my fellowship of the RACGP in 2003. Women’s and Children’s Health is a special interest of mine and I have attained a Diploma of Child Health, a Certificate in Sexual and Reproductive Health and am credentialed to insert the long acting contraceptive devices Mirena (IUD) and Implanon. In addition to General Practice, I work part-time in an Antenatal Clinic at Osborne Park Hospital where I care for women during their pregnancy.
I have an interest in Skin Cancer Medicine and recently updated my certification in Dermatoscopy. I offer skin cancer screening and can remove suspicious lesions when required.
Other areas of interest include Travel medicine, Chronic Disease Management and Mental Health. I strive to stay current with the latest evidence-based medicine. I feel honoured to be in a position to support patients and their families through the highs and lows of their health journey.
In my spare time I am busy with 3 kids, and when I get a chance, enjoy art, dancing, reading and boating on the beautiful Swan River or a relaxing trip to Rottnest.
