Dr Sharon Muir
Dr Muir finished her schooling at Richmond High and began a career in the health fields at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in 1976, completing General Nursing and topping the NSW Nurses Registration Board exam. With experience in Intensive Care and Cardiology, Sharon completed further training in Midwifery at Westmead Hospital before becoming a nurse educator and eventually a Clinical Nurse Consultant in Endocrinology.
With 15 years of experience in nursing she decided to expand her role by going back to Sydney University to study medicine. Expecting to specialise in endocrinology, Sharon instead found an interest in every aspect of medicine and a special interest in making a difference in the lives of people who come into contact with the health system. To that end she chose to specialise in General Practice, to get to know the individuals that make up a local community, their friends, family and neighbours, and to help them set and achieve their health goals. Her enthusiasm for this task continues to drive ongoing self-education, honing skills in many areas, completing more courses, and sharing the passion for this role with students and other GPs.
Sharon will continue to welcome all ages, genders and cultures and is particularly keen to reach those most vulnerable or reluctant to engage with their health concerns.
