Dr Samantha Cassidy (MBBS, FRACGP, ACCRM) – General Practitioner
Dr Samantha Cassidy completed her medical studies at the University of Tasmania, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine in 2013. Between 2014 and 2015, Samantha interned and spent her residency years at Launceston General Hospital. In the following year, she completed her GP registrar training at Scottsdale Doctors Surgery and Launceston Medical Centre. The Tasmanian native also obtained her Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) in 2018 and spent a year doing locum work across Australia’s Eastern Seaboard, including in the cities of Brisbane and Cairns.
