Discover opportunities

"I have managed more stuff on my own than I would have in a bigger city hospital. Your career advancement can be fantastic because you are more likely to get better references, you are more likely to develop better relationships with the people who decide who works where than you are in a big city."

Dr Marco Giuseppin, JCU GP Registar

Challenge yourself and expand your scope of practice

“The medicine in the Far North is completely unlike anywhere else in the rest of the country. I thought… ‘this is going to be the best!’… And it was! Big city General Practice is a whole different world to country General Practice. You're expected to be able to manage lacerations that come in. People come in with chest pain to see their GP and they tend to not do that as much in the cities,” she said. “Your breadth of experience is much better in the regional centres than in the big cities.”

Dr Grace Neely, JCU GP Registrar
