Roles and responsibilities

Dr Sarah Moore is a Senior Lecturer with the Rural Clinical School of Western Australia (RCSWA). Dr Moore provides academic scholarship in medical education, research and leadership, with a rural focus. She is a member of a number of RCSWA committees, including the Research Steering committee, formative OSCE-writing committee, Curriculum committee, Wellbeing Working Party and Green Team.

Dr Moore is currently working as a GP Obstetrician in private practice in Busselton. Sarah is also the Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee and Maternity Services Committee at Busselton Health Campus.

Sarah’s leadership and advocacy roles include establishing the WA General Practice Obstetricians Network in 2015. The Rural Clinical School of WA Regional Training Hubs project has helped her support medical students and junior doctors to learn about rural GP obstetric training and career opportunities through providing annual workshops.

Sarah established the Holistic Health Practitioner Network in 2015, which has 80 members who meet quarterly. As chairperson, she has led the network to deliver the annual South West Wellness Festival from 2016-2018.

Teaching overview

Sarah has been involved with teaching medical students within the Rural Clinical School of WA since she was a GP registrar and has also supervised GP registrars since becoming a fellow of RACGP and ACRRM. Sarah enjoys both classroom and clinical teaching, with a focus on general practice and obstetrics and gynaecology.

Sarah initiated an Interprofessional Learning Workshop on patient-centred care for stroke patients in the South West in 2012. Medical, nursing and allied health students participated, with facilitation by local allied health and nursing experts. The workshop was continued annually until 2015, with positive evaluations. This led to volunteers from the Stroke Foundation speaking to the students about their experiences of the health care system annually. 

Sarah has been actively involved in developing interactive online learning resources for RCSWA since 2013. Sarah has used a range of online programs, including Pinion and Quitch, to develop resources for learning and assessment. She has previously worked closely with Smart Sparrow as the Project Manager to develop an interactive case-based online teaching resource template that can be adapted for all disciplines of medicine and surgery. More recently, she has adapted and develop online case-based teaching resources for the RCSWA REFLEX platform. 

Sarah was awarded the UWA Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry Excellence in Teaching Award: Small Group Learning, Practicum Setting in 2013. She was awarded a Faye Gale Fellowship in 2019 and will attend the Whole Person Care Program at McGill University in Montreal, Canada in October 2019.

Sarah is the mindfulness and self-care champion at RCSWA, regularly presenting and facilitating teaching sessions for academics and students in addition to facilitating the Online Mindfulness Training for Medical Students and Junior Doctors Project as part of her PhD research.
