Serving your country with medicine - Dr. Chris Gilbert

Since leaving the ANU in 2008 I have had a diverse range of both medical and personal experiences. 

I spent my intern and resident years at Ballarat Base Hospital in Victoria. This proved to be a fantastic learning opportunity with a lot of responsibility and great hands on learning experiences (par­­tic­ularly in ED, O&G, paediatrics and surgery).

The boy from Oz - Dr. Grant Pegg

I am from Central Queensland and it was always my intention to return home to work after graduation from ANU so in 2010 I completed my internship at Rockhampton Hospital. It was great to return home and give something back to a community who had supported me throughout my early years.

Canberra Calling - Dr. Heman Tse

I finished my Sydney University MBBS here in Canberra back in 2003, before the inaugural cohort of ANU students. In my final year here, I was fortunate enough to be awarded the AMA ACT student prize for leadership. I must admit, at the time, I was surprised by the nomination and the award. I did not believe that I was the leadership type, but was none-the-less flattered by being selected by my peers.

The city to country contrast - Dr. James McCracken

After graduating from the ANU Medical School in 2011, and a brief sojourn in Canberra, Laura (my wife), Ollie (our dog) and I, packed up after four years in the Nation’s Capital and headed back down the Hume to Melbourne, where we all (well, not Ollie) moved to Canberra from in 2008.
