Consultant Occupational Physician

Impact of degree on career choice and current opportunities
I have changed career and location many times. I am now one of the few general occupational physicians in Western Australia where I moved in 2006.
Recently, I have been awarded Fellowship of the Australian Faculty of Occupational Medicine. It remains to be seen whether I can stay in Australia indefinitely. The lifestyle in Western Australia is very much more relaxed than in the UK.
It is interesting to see other medics living and working in Australia have uploaded profiles.
Advice to current students
Medicine is a marvellous career that opens many doors. Workplace health is growing rapidly as a political area of interest but be very wary of political interference in the UK.
