The annual TROHPIQ Rural Careers Evening was held on the night of 17th July at UQ St Lucia campus. The aim of the night was to help tackle some of the big questions regarding medical training and work opportunities in rural Queensland. The evening was attended by 70 medical students from across the four year levels. Trade displays were provided from two of Queensland’s rural training providers (QRME and CSQTC) and two of the medical colleges (RACGP and ACRRM). The highlight of the evening was a keynote speech from Dr Nat Sheehan, who spoke of his career path from UQ medical school to current work as a rural GP. Dr Sheehan highlighted the flexibility of work and lifestyle opportunities available to rural doctors.
Thank you to those who attended and organized the night!
