Dr Shiva Rayar is the quintessential Generalist. He graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine from the University of Newcastle (2007) and trained as a junior doctor at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney where his performance was recognised with the prestigious Senior Resident of the Year Award (2010). He then went on to complete his Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and concurrently undertook further subspecialty training to become a prescribing member of the Australasian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) in 2013.
As a Specialist General Practitioner Shiva has worked in sexual health, refugee health (Christmas Island), indigenous health and emergency medicine. He has co-facilitated HIV/STI education programmes with the RACGP, ASHM and ACON. In 2020-21 he has been given the opportunity to work with the Royal Flying Doctors Service in rural NSW.
It is with this diverse breadth of experience that Shiva has laid down roots at Holdsworth House to provide considered and compassionate care for his patients.
