Dr Paul Grinzi is general practitioner who has worked in the rural setting of Romsey, Central Victoria for over a decade.
As part of his clinical workload, Paul has incorporated his interest in addiction medicine into his general practice, including working with patients with gambling-related problems.
The large overlap between addiction and other mental health problems led Paul to develop skills in assessing and managing patients with complex mental health presentations. Paul is part of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ (RACGP) Special Interest Addiction Network, and chair of the RACGP Victorian Drug and Alcohol committee.
In addition to his clinical and advocacy work, Paul works as a medical educator for Murray, City Country Coast – a GP regional training organisation, local Primary Health Networks and the RACGP, where he utilises his experience to focus on educating fellow GPs on addiction topics.
