GP Synergy farewells Director, A/Prof Michelle Guppy

GP Synergy extends its sincere thanks to Director, Associate Professor Michelle Guppy, who has resigned from the GP Synergy Board.

A/Prof Guppy was an inaugural member of the GP Synergy Board which was formed in 2009 when Regional Training Providers (RTPs), the Sydney Institute of General Practice Education and Training (SIGPET) and the New England Area Training Services (NEATS) amalgamated. Prior to this, she was a Director on the NEATS Board.

Involved in rural undergraduate medical education in Armidale since 2003, A/Prof Guppy is the Associate Professor of General Practice at the School of Rural Medicine, University of New England, and conjoint with the University of Newcastle. She is also a practising GP in Armidale.

“A/Prof Guppy is a long-standing board member who has played an integral role in the development and progression of GP Synergy,” says GP Synergy Chair, Dr Ian Kamerman.

“Her strategic insight through the SIGPET and NEATS merger was invaluable, and she has continued to provide valuable counsel to the board throughout her tenure, particularly in the areas of rural general practice training and academic research.

“On behalf of the GP Synergy Board, I sincerely thank A/Prof Guppy for her dedication and contribution, and we look forward to working with A/Prof Guppy in her other professional capacities,” Dr Kamerman said.
