A Queensland doctor has been found guilty of raping a woman after a medical procedure.

Dr Olajide Olusesan Ogunseye denied sexually assaulting and trying to kiss the woman at his Hervey Bay business in 2018.

But a jury found the 53-year-old guilty on Monday after eight hours of deliberation.

Ogunseye was accused of penetrating the woman's vagina with one or more fingers after doing a pap smear on October 4.

Ogunseye also tried to kiss the woman's mouth after he touched her, prosecutor Noel Needham said at the opening of the five-day trial.

When she sat up and got dressed, he apologised and tried to hug her before she left the room, Mr Needham told the court.

Ogunseye was remanded in custody ahead of his sentencing in the Brisbane District Court on Tuesday.
