Meet THE doctor
Dr Praveen Yoganathan is a Psychiatry Registrar & Cannabis Clinician based in Melbourne, Victoria.
Dr Praveen has always had an inherent interest in exploring the complexities of the human mind and understanding individuals on a more complex and multifaceted level. This passion led him to pursue specialisation in the field of psychiatry and he is currently a trainee of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) and completing his Master of Psychiatry at Melbourne University.
Dr Praveen graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery, practicing in Brisbane before returning to his home city of Melbourne. He has gained extensive clinical exposure working across a broad range of specialties including general medicine, rehabilitation medicine, chronic pain clinics and aged care. He has also worked in multiple areas of Psychiatry including, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Adult Mental Health and Older Adult Mental Health. Praveen is committed to providing holistic care which is customised to the unique needs of each individual patient, taking into account their distinctive characteristics and circumstances.
