Australia

Dr Gillian Laven works in medical education and research with a major interest in medical workforce, public and global health issues. She holds two positions within the University, lecturer and researcher within the Discipline of Rural Health, Spencer Gulf Rural Health School, School of Population Health and Clinical Practice and Reserach Fellow in the School of Medicine also within the Faculty of Health Sciences, the University of Adelaide. Since graduating from the University of Adelaide, Bachelor Health Sciences program in 1998, Gillian has been involved with issues relating to medical education and workforce and health related access for rural communities. In 2000, she began a large national study of general practitioners - the Australian Rural Background Study - to determine the association between rural background and the decision to practice in a rural location. This national study was undertaken with Professor's Justin Beilby and David Wilkinson and formed the basis to her thesis completed in 2008. Gillian coordinates the Global Health course for medical students interested in the management of population health (e.g. water and sanitation, infectious diseases) and the impact culture, gender and politics on health and medical workforce in rural and remote communities and developing worlds.
