Dr Kate BealesDr Beales is passionate about supporting doctors in passing their RACGP exams. Kate has been working as a GP since 2007 in many different contexts including remote Australia, Melbourne and now Hobart. This well-rounded experience gives her a unique perspective on what it takes to be an effective and successful GP. Throughout Kate's training she has witnessed the challenges many registrars face trying to sit the RACGP exams, often with minimal support to understand what is required. This has driven her to help others develop the skills required to face their exams with confidence. And to offer quality, evidence-based care that is flexible and focused on individual patient needs and circumstances.
