Welcome Event

On February 23rd, approximately 150 GPSN and SPINRPHEX members came together at the FJ Clarke Lecture Theatre, UWA, for a night of rural health, plastering, x-rays and some classic banter. Doctor Rachel Hall, described life as an island tourer and rural Ophthalmologist Angus Turner gave engaging presentations about rural health careers and the difficulties but importance of rural medicine, reminding us all we can make a difference. Clinical skills stations on plastering and interpreting X-rays were run, giving students the opportunity to engage and learn new skills. Broadway pizza for dinner was a great way to kick-start the evening and facilitated a great environment for peer networking.
