After completing Year 12 at Keith Area School she worked as a stunt double on the television show "McLeod's Daughters" before starting her tertiary education with a Bachelor of Medical Science at Flinders University, majoring in Physiology and Neuroscience. She was elected President of the Medical Science Students' Society, inducted into the Golden Key International Honour Society and also worked as Senior Residential Coordinator on campus at Flinders Living.
From here she was accepted into the graduate-entry medical program at Flinders University and completed the Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery degree, also acting as the Publications Officer for the Medical Students' Society. Sarah was privileged to enjoy final-year placements at St Francis Hospital in Zambia and the National Paediatric Hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where she gained valuable procedural and diagnostic skills.
Dr Willoughby completed her Intern year at the Mount Gambier Hospital where a placement in General Practice in Millicent confirmed her love of the specialty. After a year at the Lyell McEwen Hospital in Elizabeth Vale, she returned to Millicent to complete her General Practice training, achieving Fellowship to the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in February 2017.
