Working rurally has been a career advantage
Dr Shehnarz Salindera, a General Surgery trainee, talks about how doing her internship and resident years in Coffs Harbour enabled her to get to know senior consultants more closely than she could have in a metropolitan setting, which she feels was a career advantage when it came to applying for the surgical program.
Why I came to a rural town as a locum and stayed
