Dr. G. BerniPartner / GP (DMedCir - Asu, MRCGP, MSc PHDC, DipFMS, HCL)
Dr Gus Berni obtained his medical degree in Asuncion, Paraguay in 1991. After qualifying as a doctor he spent four years as a resident in surgery and medicine followed by one year as a District Medical Officer in rural Paraguay. The health needs of rural Paraguay made him decide to specialise in maternal health so he spent the following three years as a resident in obstetrics and gynaecology in the IPS hospital in Asuncion. In 1998 he won an award from the British Council to pursue his passion in public health and attended the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where he obtained a Master degree in Public Health for Developing Countries in 1999.
He argues that General Practice was the natural progression to his medical career. He decided to amalgamate individual and population health principles together and qualified as a GP in Liverpool in 2004 and became a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. In 2012 he added to his portfolio the Diploma in Forensic Medical Sciences from the University of Glasgow. In 2017 the University of Liverpool gave him the title of Honorary Clinical Lecturer in association with his role in teaching medical students.
He currently combines his clinical, educational and managerial work at 40/42 Kingsway surgery with his role as board director for the South Sefton Federation of GPs.
