Dr David Campbell graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1978 and embarked upon a “voyage of discovery” in preparation for rural practice. This included work in remote South Australia, remote Western Australia, and far north Queensland as well as two years at Alice Springs Hospital.
After a decade at Lakes Entrance Community Health Centre and 12 months working in rural England and Wales, Dr Campbell established the Cunninghame Arm Medical Centre in 1994. The practice was one of the first in Australia to establish computerised medical records. CAMC has grown steadily since that time and has been situated at the current site since 2001. The branch practice in Bairnsdale, Dr Jane’s Place, was established in 2018.
Dr Campbell provides comprehensive rural medical care, and has special interests in emergency medicine, men’s health, skin cancer surgery, paediatrics, and practice management.
Dr Campbell has been involved in medical education and rural medical workforce for more than twenty-five years. He is a Past-President of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine and has been the Censor-in-Chief for the College since 2011.
Between 2003 and 2018 Dr Campbell worked as Associate Professor Rural Medicine and Director of the Monash University East Gippsland Regional Clinical School.
