After graduating from medical school Dr Cullen worked as a junior doctor at Toowoomba Hospital for 2 years.
In 2006, she was posted by the Royal Australian Army to Lavorack barracks in Townsville as part of her return of service obligation. This was on a background of Dr Cullen being a private and then a scientific officer in the Army Reserves. An unforeseen medical condition unfortunately saw her medically discharged at the end of that year despite her desire to remain in uniform.
Always one to make the best of any situation, and following her husband’s posting to Sydney, Dr Cullen worked as a junior doctor at Sydney Children’s Hospital.
From there she moved to the Royal Children’s Hospital in Brisbane in both a junior doctor & then a registrar capacity across many of the paediatric specialties offered. A fortunate transfer resulted in her move to Redcliffe Hospital again as a registrar in paediatrics. At this time, Dr Cullen and her husband fell in love with the Redcliffe peninsula and decided that it was the ideal place to raise their 2 young children. It was at this time she completed her diploma in child health & acute paediatric life support. Despite loving her work in paediatrics, Dr Cullen decided a more family friendly medical role was required and she made the hesitant move to general practice (and Majellan Medical Centre) in 2010. Dr Cullen has always enjoyed all areas of medicine and it was in this general practice setting that she was able to work to her full potential. She now works full time, enjoying a mixed practice of general medicine, child health and skin cancer medicine. In particular, she has a strong interest in child development, complex paediatric care and allergy/immunology. Dr Cullen is also one of a few female GPs who insert Mirenas on the Brisbane Northside.Book Appointment Our Doctors
