Meet Tess, a UQ medical student

“Growing up in a small country town I was very aware of the lack of doctors, especially female doctors working in rural areas, so I’ve always wanted to come back closer to home to help fix this problem.”

"Rockhampton hospital is a fun and friendly environment with some really excellent work. You get to work up a lot of interesting pathologies and be part of a huge trauma resource."
