Dr Matthew Yap graduated with a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Melbourne in 2016, after completing a Bachelor of Biomedicine. Over the last 4 years, he has worked at both Footscray and Sunshine Hospital, as well as in General Practice within the City of Casey.
Matthew prides himself on being an attentive, patient and caring doctor. He also has a special interest in mental health, after working in Sunshine Hospital’s psychiatric unit, and finds it most rewarding when he can optimise his patient’s physical and emotional well-being. Lastly, Matthew is passionate about education and teaching and uses this enthusiasm to promote preventative health care for his patients, as well as mentoring junior doctors and medical students.
In his free time, Matthew involves himself heavily in sports, including playing social futsal, supporting the Melbourne Demons, and analysing his SuperCoach teams. In the near future, he hopes to continue to travel the world, and add to the 36 countries that he has already crossed off his bucket list!
Dr Yap will begin consulting full time at Eastbound in February 2021 and his primary supervisor will be Dr Owen Latimer.
