Staff Category: Psychiatry Registrar

Sangita Raj

Hello, I’m Sangita. I am a psychiatry registrar who joined VTMH in February 2024.

Originally from Malaysia, I gained my Bachelor of Medicine in India, and my Masters of Psychiatry from the University of Melbourne. I’m currently training to be a psychiatrist with the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.

I’ve worked in Werribee Mercy as a psychiatry registrar and prior to that I was working in psychiatry in a rural town in Malaysia. Over the years, I have had exposure with working across a diverse population. I have volunteered in NGOs in Malaysia working with refugees, asylum seekers and the indigenous population there.

I am passionate in supporting organisations become more culturally responsive and understanding the importance of cultural sensitivity in mental health care.

Away from work, I’m an avid reader and enjoy spending time with my family.
