My colleagues, friends and patients often ask me this question: “why rural general practice?”
Some people assume that I have been “forced” to “go out bush”—but I chose the rural life.
I am a fellow of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) with Advanced Skills Training (AST) in emergency medicine. I am a rural generalist and I absolutely love what I do.
I completed a number of rural placements while I was a medical student at James Cook University. During this time I experienced first-hand the beauty of rural life and quickly fell in love with it.
