A LOCAL doctor has been recognised for her passion and commitment to nurturing new and upcoming doctors being awarded the Queensland General Practice Supervisor of the Year award. 

Dr Yvette Morcos officially became a GP in early 2017 where she then moved to the Tablelands in 2018 and started working for Mulungu Aboriginal Corporation Primary Health Care Service. 

Since working at Mulungu Dr Morcos has been tasked as being a GP supervisor where she oversees trainee GPs. 

Dr Morcos was surprised to discover that she was nominated for the award by one of the three registrars that she supervises. 

“I was very flattered, you hope that people are happy with you and the work you do so it’s nice to know that I’ve provided the registrars with the support and guidance they needed,” she said.

“There are people out there who have done much more supervision and been at this a lot longer so there is fierce competition.” 

Dr Morcos was given her award by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. She is now in contention for the national award that will be announced in December.
