Carolin is a passionate and caring doctor. She prides herself on her balance of medical knowledge and communication skills, ensuring her patients are well informed and feel comfortable knowing they are in safe hands. 

Carolin completed her medical training through the University of Melbourne. She undertook her specialty training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Mercy Hospital for Women, the Northern Hospital, and Bendigo Base Hospital. She completed her advanced training at Epworth Freemasons (with a focus on laparoscopic surgery) and at the Royal Women’s Hospital (with a focus on the management of high-risk pregnancies and ultrasound). 

Carolin works in both the public and private sectors at the Mercy Hospital for Women. Her public role includes looking after women during their pregnancies and in labour. She works as a general gynaecologist helping women with a range of gynaecological problems, and she also works in the colposcopy clinic further investigating women with an abnormal cervical screening test (traditionally known as the ‘pap smear’).
