After seven years of study, Alice Brewer has not only accomplished her goal of becoming a graduate doctor, but she’s also been accepted as a medical intern at Fairfield Hospital.
The 24-year-old recently completed a post-graduate degree in medicine at the University of Sydney, and will now earn on the job experience at Liverpool and Fairfield Hospitals.
Dr Brewer officially began the internship last week, with orientation at Liverpool Hospital alongside 42 other graduates.
“It’s been really good, everyone has been really supportive,” she said.
“Science was something I was really passionate about growing up and Ithink I was always interested in having a career that would help people.
“Doctors have great power over being able to change people’s lives, and that’s the kind of career I want to be in.”
The new doctor said it would be a challenge to learn the ins and outs of administration and take on extra responsibility, but she is looking forward to becoming more confident and exploring different fields of medicine.
Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons visited the hospital to meet Dr Brewer and the other graduateson thefirst week of their placement.
‘‘It is a privilege to go to Liverpool Hospital each year to meet these graduates,’’ she said.
‘‘It is exciting to be there to see them at the beginning of their journey as doctors.
‘‘We are fortunate they are starting their internship at Liverpool Hospital. I wish them well during their time here and hope they can enjoy all our local community has to offer.’’
So far, there were almost 1000 medical interns placed in NSW this year — setting a new record.
A total of 53 graduates were placed in south west Sydney hospitals.
