Today we put a spotlight on one of our new doctors! 👋 28-year-old Matthew started studying Veterinary Sciences and shared with us how he ended up as one of RBWH's 2021 interns.
“I was in my final year of studying Veterinary Sciences when I had an allergic reaction to a cat which landed me in hospital. It was here that I witnessed how great our health system is in Australia and how well supported our hospitals are. As soon as I got the idea of studying medicine in my head, my mind was made up," he said.
“I can’t wait to make the transition from student to intern so I can take on some responsibilities and learn from medical industry leaders.
“After my intern year, I’d love to specialise in general surgery or trauma. I like the pragmatic nature of surgery and the fact that you can be active and use your hands.”
