Dr. Denise Powell – Principal General Practitioner and Practice Owner
In 2017, I will have been a doctor for 40 years. For the majority of these years, I have practiced in Bundaberg and District. So the area is and always will be very much home. My ancestors on both sides immigrated and settled in the area. My mother’s family came from Denmark in the 1860’s and my father’s family came from Wales later that century. My children and grandchildren now live here.
My primary schooling was at local state schools in various towns throughout central Queensland, due to my father’s work as an engineman with Queensland Government Railway. I attended Bundaberg State High for my secondary schooling and then attended the University of Queensland, where I obtained my Medical degree. I graduated with an M.B.B.S (First Class Honours) and undertook my junior doctor training at the Royal Brisbane Hospital.
My post graduate qualifications have largely been obtained by distance education from various Universities. I obtained these whilst working and raising a family and more latterly a “grand” family. My post graduate qualifications include; a Master’s degree in Family Medicine, a Graduate Diploma in Human Nutrition and Graduate Certificates in health professional education, applied science and breast ultrasound.
I have a fellowship to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners as well as a Fellowship to the Australasian Society of Breast Physicians.
My current medical interests include teaching, training, assessing and mentoring doctors and other health professionals. I am a Senior Lecturer in General Practice at UQ Rural Clinical School and I am an accredited trainer for the General Practice Training Consortia. I also train medical students from many other Universities.
I work at the Breast Screen unit as a Visiting Medical Officer where I do clinical assessments as well as read mammograms and perform biopsy procedures. My work with women on their initial breast cancer diagnosis has taught me a lot about the resilience of the human spirit.
My hobbies include social cycling and growing exotic and native fruits. I have ridden my bicycle in some of the areas of Australia and overseas countries where my plants originate from and I hope to see many more!
I would like to acknowledge the enormous contribution that my staff and colleagues, as well as you, make to my continuing enthusiasm for Millbank Medical Practice and now See Street Practice as well.
