Professor Meredith Temple-Smith is the Director of Research Training in the Department of General Practice. Primarily a qualitative researcher, her interests centre on sexual health, hepatitis C, and health services research.

She is currently a Chief Investigator on a substantial suite of projects examining ways to improve and sustain Chlamydia testing in the general practice setting, based on the Australian Chlamydia Control Effectiveness Pilot (ACCEPt), a cluster randomised controlled trial of chlamydia testing in general practice. She is also a CI on subsequent grants which are evaluating this intervention and its sustainability in 54 rural towns and 150 practices. She has written or co-written over 100 peer-reviewed publications and two books, and edited three books, used as texts. She is Co-Chair of the Australasian Sexual Health Alliance, a sexual health advocacy alliance representing 13 multidisciplinary organisations, and on the Board of Murray City Country Coast, a GP training provider. She assisted in the establishment of VicReN, the Victorian general practice based research network. She is heavily involved in teaching primary care research skills to primary care practitioners, and has oversight of all research students in the Department.
