With a long-standing desire to work in disaster and humanitarian medicine, I trained as an Australian generalist, obtaining Fellowship of the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (FACRRM) with Advanced Specialized Training in Emergency Medicine, and Fellowship of the Australasian College of Tropical Medicine (FACTM). In Australia I work predominantly as a regional, rural, or remote emergency doctor, and also hold specialist general practice registration. My interest is in the optimal delivery of health care to complex populations in great need, and in the ethics of the delivery of this care.
In 2015 I worked as the non-communicable disease doctor for MSF's projects with Syrian refugees in and around Tripoli, northern Lebanon. Our team there was treating complicated diseases in a population of vulnerable, displaced people, creating access where there was little, and learning along the way how to improve the quality of care in this setting.
I'm currently on a nine-month assignment in Agok, in a remote area between Sudan and South Sudan.
