Growing up in North West Tasmania, Jerome relocated to Queensland to study medicine. He returned to Tasmania completing his General Practice training at the Launceston General Hospital, Longford, Smithton and George Town. After spending over 2 years working in a variety of general practices, country hospitals and Emergency Departments across rural and remote Australia he now calls Launceston home.
His special interests include acute and emergency medicine and this is a key reason for establishing the Launceston Medical centre next to the Launceston General Hospital. This was in order to give patients an option for their acute health care needs.
His other interest areas include work cover and sporting injuries for which he assists Tasmanian institute of sport athletes and a number of football teams in the north.
In his spare time, Jerome enjoys playing AFL for Evandale football club and spending time with his young family.
