About @dchessor

Dr David Chessor is a General Practice Registrar working in rural NSW, working at an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service on the beautiful Mid North Coast. This blog came out of a growing interest in social media, and particular how it relates to medicine and medical education in the modern world. You can follow him on Twitter – favourite hashtags currently include #FOAMed, #Supertwision, #Indigenoushealth, #closethegap and #GPexams13.

Among many interests in medicine, current favourites are below, and blog posts will (possibly) come from this list:-

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health
  • Medical Education
  • Improving the quality of GP training and education
  • The ‘art’ of being a great GP, and the doctor-patient relationship

When not doctoring, David’s loves include his family, noble canine companion Herbie (the Love Pug), recreational cycling, travelling the world, and challenging pensioners to knitting contests.

He also feels that writing about himself in the third person can’t possibly be healthy…
