Tell us about your role:
I work across the two Clinical School locations in the Cairns Hospital and the JCU City Campus. I work with the teams looking after the MBBS years 4-6 based in Cairns, the Cairns Coast GP Training node and the Cairns and Cape and Torres Regional Training Hubs. I have an amazing team who work closely with the students, registrars, academics and staff based in the hospitals and private clinics to ensure we are providing an excellent learning experience and also to promote training opportunities in the region after medical school.
What do you find most rewarding part of your role?
I enjoy so much about this role, the work we are doing is making a real impact on the health outcomes for people across regional, rural and remote Australia and I feel a lot of pride in that. I have been able to get to know a lot of Queensland that I wouldn’t have otherwise had a lot of experience in, visiting Thursday Island a few times a year, for example, is a pretty special experience. Finally, I love working with my team. They are a bunch of outstanding individuals and I feel so lucky to be in a position to work alongside them.
