Dr Steve Holmes

Former Chair


Steve is a senior rural GP/obstetrician with a passion for teaching registrars and medical students.

Steve trained (and remains registered) as a specialist pathologist before doing a GP locum for a friend in the South Australian town of Clare, where he discovered the unique attractions of general practice that were missing from a career as a pathologist.

As well as having the valuable skill set of the Australian rural GP, Steve’s knowledge and interests outside of medicine – combined with a sense of humour – make him an ideal mentor and supervisor.

Steve has a long history of advocacy for rural general practice through positions with a number of professional bodies, including the Australian Medical Association (AMA).
