Dr Tom Mildenhall
After graduating with honours from the University of Western Australia, I completed my internship at Fremantle Hospital. Further post-graduate experience was gained through tertiary hospitals in Melbourne, including the Royal Children’s and Royal Melbourne Hospitals and the Mercy Hospital for Women, which provided me with an excellent grounding in paediatric and adult medicine and fostered a passion for caring for patients across the age-spectrum, from newborns to retirees.
I worked in a number of general practices across Melbourne during my postgraduate GP Fellowship training which gave me an understanding of delivering high quality health care to a community. I really value the importance of the doctor-patient relationship and providing personalised care, underpinned by patient education and involvement in decision making.
Prior to returning to Perth, I spent 2 years working in rural general practice in Jervis Bay on the New South Wales south coast. This provided me with insight into the challenges experienced in a rural setting along with the rewards of creating strong bonds with the community that you live and work in.
I am passionate about all areas of general practice and have particular interests in neonatal and child health, adult and aged care medicine, men’s health, chronic disease management, travel and skin cancer medicine. I have a diploma in women’s health and have completed additional training in skin cancer medicine.
Other interests include traveling, cooking and building sand castles with my 2 children.
