I graduated from Medicine at UWA in 2001. I had never considered Medicine as a career before the School for Indigenous Studies visited my high school in Year 12 and told me that I could. I was granted provisional entry into the course and I have never looked back.Medicine is a long degree, it requires commitment as a student but it is well worth it! It’s not all hard work though. I was very well supported by the Centre for Aboriginal Medical and Dental Health (CAMDH) and being a medical student came with incredible opportunities for learning, traveling, socializing and academic achievement. The highlights of my time as a student were my Obstetrics term at KEMH, and an elective in my final year where I spent six weeks working in Alice Spring and nearby Aputula community.
