Dr Rothwell graduated from Sydney University in 1980. She spent her intern and resident years at Royal North Shore Hospital, before moving to Victoria where she completed two further years at Dandenong and District Hospital. Dr Rothwell then worked in part-time rural general practice in West Gippsland whilst her family were young, gaining the FRACGP in 1990. After a return to Sydney in 1995, Gill became more involved in palliative care work, initially at Lottie Stewart Hospital whilst gaining a Grad Dip Pall Med (Mel Uni) in 1999 and FAChPM in 2000.
