The Australian Medicine Careers Guide

The Australian Medicine Careers Guide

Edited by Manda Raz and Erwin Loh

CONTENTS

Are you a medical student or junior doctor who aspires to pursue a satisfying career within the medical profession? The Australian Medicine Careers Guide is for you. This useful academic companion provides advice about career pathways and specific training information.

With input from newly graduated doctors and established medical practitioners, this book will help you navigate the otherwise complex medical career journey. Beginning with an outline of how medical students can maximise their career prospects while studying at university and immediately after graduation, it then presents the major career options available to junior doctors, followed by a discussion on the legal implications of being a doctor.

A final section on the technological advances in medicine reminds readers that humanity – the essence of the doctor-patient relationship – should be preserved and practised. This is a guide that will engage and reward readers as they embark on their career as a medical practitioner.
