Dr Polina Smerdova

MBBS


I graduated from the North-Western State Medical University, one of the major Russian universities for medical studies, in 2011. Following a comprehensive postgraduate training program in leading hospitals, I went on to specialise in General Practice with special interests in Neurology, Mental Health and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

For me, being a GP means everyday empathetic engagement with patients and finding professional fulfilment in tackling a wide interdisciplinary range of physical and mental health issues. I am happy and proud to offer my skills (but hopefully not my exceptional skills in managing frostbite!), experience and dedication to the South Coast community. When not being a doctor (though one never actually stops), I’m a keen traveller and enjoy bushwalking, bicycle riding and snowboarding.
