KI Docs is written by Tim Leeuwenburg, one of the six doctors working at the Kangaroo Island Medical Clinic.
Tim has a background in emergency medicine before coming to Kangaroo Island in 2004 as a GP registrar and staying on as a partner after achieving FRACGP and FACRRM.
He picked up his DRANZCOG in Tasmania 2008 and recently spent 2011 upskilling in anaesthetics in NSW. He’s passionate about rural medicine with a particular emphasis on emergency and trauma medicine (senior EMST instructor & course director with the Royal Australian College of Surgeons). He won the Australian Trauma Society prize back in 2007 for his work on wildlife-vehicle collisions.
When not working, Tim enjoys fiddling with chainsaws, devising roadkill recipes with partner Patricia, sea-kayaking and enjoying the many natural delights of Kangaroo Island.
