So often in conversations about health and wellbeing, people in regional communities get forgotten – and that’s something GP Dr Michela Sorensen is committed to changing. The Sydney-based GP, who has extensive experience working in rural and isolated locations, is passionate about building empowered and thriving communities across Australia. And helping those communities access to reliable health information, is the best pathway to do it.

Michela, a country girl at heart, realised the value of reliable, safe healthcare at a very early age. She grew up in country Victoria where the nearest doctor was 200km away and often booked out a month in advance – which proved problematic when she consistently dislocated (and on one occasion, painfully broke) her elbow. Those experiences imparted to her the value of having a good relationship with – and convenient access to – a medical professional.

Since graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2011 and being admitted to the Royal Australian College for General Practitioners in 2013, Michela has worked in rural Uganda, Alice Springs, Karratha (WA) and far north Queensland. All of these experiences have reinforced her conviction that only when communities are healthy can they truly prosper.

As well as rural medicine, Michela has a keen interest in women’s health, paediatrics, fertility and mental health. In particular, she has a keen interest in the challenges facing young women in the digital age, such as the pressures of ‘hustle culture’ and beauty standards displayed on social media. As such, she has worked extensively with women aged 14 to 30 to enhance resilience and mental wellbeing, responding to the unique needs of this age group.

Over the past few years Michela has built a reputation for breaking down medical information into easily digestible messages relevant to everyday Aussies. Her warmth and trustworthiness have made her a favourite guest on Seven Network’s The Morning Show, and she has also been quoted in ABC News stories, Mamamia and News.com.au on topics including vaccination, skin cancer protection and the mental health challenges faced by children during the pandemic.

Michela practises full-time at Double Bay GPs in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. An avid fan of sport, yoga, cooking and travel in her downtime, she sees it as a privilege to support the wellbeing of her patients. That compassion and care also extends to the thousands of Aussies who connect with her on social media and watch or read her interviews. Michela is a doctor truly committed to making a difference.

Michela is available for media interviews and appearances, and PR campaigns.
