Dr Richard Shepherd
M.B.B.S. B.Med.Sc FRACGP
Almost a local, Dr Shepherd started grade 2 in Rockhampton and attended UQ for his medical degree. He spent an extra year undergoing multidisciplinary medical research before interning at RBWH. After that he went west to work in Mt Isa, and surrounds, for two years before returning to RBWH for a variety of rotations. Having worked in all the different medical specialties in Mt Isa, and then at Rockhampton Hospital, Dr Shepherd has a broad generalist background and completed his FRACGP training locally.
Although new to City Heart in 2021 Dr Shepherd has worked the previous 23 years in Rockhampton and so knows the area well. He is a keen historian and served as president of the local ADFAS chapter and was involved with the old Art Gallery. In his down time, he enjoys science fiction and has a certain notoriety having treated “Darth Vader” and so is more than just a GP.
Having married a local girl, he has no plans to leave town before he retires and so he will be here for a few more years yet.
