DR ALWYN RAPATSA
General Practitioner and Practice Principal
My name is Phutiane Alwyn Rapatsa. I qualified as a medical practitioner in 2002 from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. After that I enrolled for postgraduate studies in Family Medicine (University of Pretoria) and Primary Health Care (University College London), while working as a clinician and lecturer in South Africa until 2013, when I decided to move to Roma. I was awarded the Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine in 2015. As a GP, I am able to help patients with problems on all aspects of medicine with the support of other members of the primary health care team.
