Dr Judith Kirwood
MBBS (Hons), FRACGP, DRANZCOG
We’re very fortunate to have such an experienced local medical professional on the team.
Judith trained at Box Hill and Warragul hospitals after graduating from medicine at Monash University in 1984. Her training included a paediatric term and a year of obstetrics.
She went on to practise at a family clinic in Highett for 14 years. This was followed by a leap into the challenging world of student health at Monash Uni. Judith treated staff and students with an emphasis on mental, sexual and traveller’s health.
Most recently, Judith worked in a diverse St Kilda Road practice which specialises in worker’s health, chronic disease and travel medicine.
Judith has additional qualifications in international travel medicine and enjoys all areas of women’s health, shared care and contraception advice. She’s also a certified prescriber of MS 2-Step for the medical termination of a pregnancy.
Judith treats patients for all health conditions and has special interests in:
- Men’s health
- Travel medicine
- Women’s health
- Child and youth health
- Pregnancy planning and shared care
- Mental health
Most of Judith’s children have flown the coop, giving her time to thoroughly enjoy the great outdoors. This involves a healthy mix of cycling, skiing, hiking and adventure travel – when time permits.
