Dr Hilton Koppe
Hilton is a general practitioner/family physician in Lennox Head, a small village in the NSW Northern Rivers region on Australia’s east coast.
He has been a country doctor since 1988, and have combined medical practice with teaching medical students, doctors-in-training and experienced clinicians.
Hilton has developed creative writing programs that bridge the gap between cold science and the lived human experience. These workshops have helped patients coming to terms with medical issues, and medical professionals struggling to re-find the human at their centre.
He also enjoys playing with words on the page. His writing explores what it means to be human and a doctor.
