Emerald Hospital hosts and inspires medical students
7 January 2019
Emerald Hospital is hosting 12 medical students, showing firsthand the attractions of rural medicine.
The University of Queensland medical students are at Emerald Hospital from January 7 to 11, 2019, for a rural training and induction program.
The program, facilitated by Associate Professor Ewen McPhee and Emerald Hospital senior doctor Dr Maureen Shuttlewood, will focus on rural medicine, mental health and medicine in society.
Dr Shuttlewood is looking forward to hosting the students, saying they will have a chance to develop their theoretical and practical skills.
“A varied and interactive training program has been scheduled to keep the students interested and engaged,” she said.
“We’ll be showing them the best of Emerald Hospital and I’m sure when they see our great team and facilities they will want to come back to live and work in Emerald at the completion of their studies.”
