Dr Matthew Skinner

Community Representative

Matthew is a general and infectious diseases physician working in Perth. He trained in Melbourne, obtaining his undergraduate degree in 1996. Travel and volunteer work in Africa prior to 2000 sparked an interest in infectious diseases, especially HIV. Training was undertaken in Melbourne, before completing his fellowship in Perth in 2008. He returned to WA in 2012 to take up his current post at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

He keeps an active interest in HIV, working with research staff at Murdoch University, and providing clinical care in an outpatient setting there. He has an active interest in teaching and education, and looks forward to making a contribution to WAAC.
