Cybil and Austin are straight out of university and into our #TPCH ED this week, as two of our 169 new junior doctors across Metro North. 🏥😄🩺

Both originally international students, who studied completely different undergraduate degrees before moving into medicine, Cybil and Austin have one additional thing in common – an eagerness to dive right into the deep end to help out people in need.

30 year-old Cybil studied journalism first before moving into medicine, admitting both career paths suit her inquisitive nature.

“I’ve always been fascinated by the human body and have wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” she said.

Meanwhile 33 year-old Austin first studied economics before a trip to Greece where he shadowed a doctor on the island guided him towards his career interest in emergency medicine.

“I saw how this doctor responded to all kinds of medical issues on this tiny island, and my love of emergency was born here,” he said.

“I’m so happy to start in the ED – it’s unprecedented times at the moment but we’re just so happy to be here.”

"All you can do is stay positive and do what you can to make yourself happy. My wife and I bought a motor home and we do trips here and there. From inland bush to coastal beaches, getaways take our minds off things and we can relax. It always feels like a weight has been taken off our shoulders and helps us cope with reality."

A massive #ShoutoutSaturday to clinical nurse Daniel who this week started as Acting Cancer Care Coordinator of Cancer Care Services at TPCH! 👏 After nine years in a clinical teaching role, Daniel was keen to get back to treating patients face-to-face where can make a personal impact on their healthcare journeys.

"Working in cancer care is the best job in the world," Daniel said.

"You won't find anyone in these sorts of patient-focused roles who don't have a passion for helping people."

Join us in welcoming Daniel to his new role! 😇🏥

Rain or shine, you'll find nurse unit manager Anna at TPCH's fever clinic! We know the lines can sometimes be longer than desirable, especially at the moment when we are seeing more and more cases of COVID-19.

We're working to see people as quickly as possible, but Anna has some recommendations on what to bring with you to make the wait more comfortable.

Along with your mask and Medicare card, think of taking with you:
👒 A hat
🧴 Some sunscreen
💧 Your water bottle
☔ Umbrella
📕 A book or something to do

"Some people have started to bring camp chairs so they can sit comfortably and wait, it's not a bad idea at all," Anna said.
