Dr Liz Sturgiss is a clinician-researcher who is driven to improve general practice care for at-risk populations. Liz maintains a strong interest in obesity, chronic disease management, and substance dependence. Liz focuses on finding real-world solutions by exploring how and why general practice is effective for people and how these mechanisms can be applied in other settings.

Dr Sturgiss has been a fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners since 2012 and was a Founding Fellow of Clinical Forensic Medicine (RCPA). In 2017 she was awarded an Endeavour Research Fellowship to travel to the University of Alberta, Canada to study Cognitive Task Analysis and methods for theoretically-informed evaluations of complex interventions.

Through her PhD Liz explored the therapeutic alliance in general practice and how it strengthens obesity management - her ongoing work will explore how relationships shape the interactions between patients and their GPs. Liz is particularly passionate about reducing health inequities by exploring how general practice can work better for at-risk populations.
