Registrar Awards

Dr Katie Snow – RACGP GP in Training of the Year

We are pleased to announce that Dr Katie Snow has been awarded RACGP GP in Training of the Year.

This highly deserved accolade recognises an exceptional registrar who demonstrates a commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of communities in rural or remote Australia.

RACGP Acting President Associate Professor Ayman Shenouda today congratulated Katie on her award, saying:

“Dr Snow has really dived head first into her work in Bendigo and involved herself in the community wherever possible. That includes working with a Refugee Health team to create COVID-19 videos and flyers as well as giving informative talks to other healthcare professionals at an International Women’s Day event.

“Her positive attitude, willingness to always learn and strong connection with patients from all walks of life has not gone unnoticed. I believe these are the key ingredients in being a successful GP and I have no doubt that Dr Snow will have a long career in general practice.

A former MCCC registrar, Katie’s medical student years were spent at the University of Melbourne, with her GP training journey beginning in 2017 at Strathfieldsaye Primary Health. Moving on to Marong Medical Practice and finally to Bendigo Community Health Services (BCHS), Katie’s breadth of general practice training has prepared her well for life as a GP.

She has continued to practice at BCHS since her recent fellowship. Katie has also recently featured on videos produced by the health service to help refugee communities better understand the threat posed by coronavirus.

Katie enjoys the fact that there is huge variety in general practice.

“The fun thing about GP is that there’s no such thing as a typical day….you have no idea what your (patients) are going to be coming in with.”
