Training as a nurse in the 80’s required stamina, obedience and the capacity to starch a hat and rock a cape. Fast forward to the nineties and I entered the world of post graduate critical care training where the dresses in ICU were supplied but were exceptionally thin and water was to be avoided at all costs.
Being a complete adrenaline junkie constantly running from boredom, emergency was my natural calling, and I really loved the scrub which was sort of like going to work in your PJ’s.
Nowadays I wear casual gear in my role as Safety and Quality manager and I sometimes dress up in costume for simulation training as part of my program support officer role for the EMET program. BTW….I really love a wig!!

Dr Anne McGuane
Director of Medical Education and Training – Colac Area Health

Phone: (03) 52325144 

Dr Anne McGuane was born in Ballarat Victoria but her childhood years were spent on Magnetic Island (off Townsville) in Far North Queensland.
She completed a Bachelor of Science at Deakin University Waurn Ponds while living in Lorne and having her babies (3 now adult children).  She then went on to study post graduate medicine at Flinders University through their Rural Clinical School in the Riverland of South Australia and returned to Victoria to Barwon Health for her internship and residency.  There she completed her Diploma of Obstetrics before embarking on her ongoing adventures as a rural GP proceduralist in Colac.  There she enjoys the diversity and privilege of all rural practice has to offer – great colleagues, amazing medicine and the excitement of cradle to grave care of the Colac community.
In 2018 Anne took on the role of Director of Medical Education and Training at Colac Area Health to help facilitate the arrival of HMOs (rotated out of University Hospital Geelong) to Colac Hospital’s workforce.
In her copious spare time Anne enjoys gardening (on her 5 acre property), baking and travelling with her super cool kids to places far away…
