Two young doctors share their experiences attending a prevocational placement in NT

Date posted: 17 October 2013

Two young Australian doctors have shared their experiences in attending the Prevocational General Practice Placements Program (PGPPP) in the Northern Territory (NT).

Dr Jessica Reagh and Dr Iyngaranathan Selvaratnam both completed their PGPPP placements in remote communities in the NT, and discuss the beneficial experience of being exposed to 'unfamiliar and challenging medical conditions' that are unique to Indigenous Australians living in these areas. In particular, both doctors noted that exposure rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and the social impact of the condition, was something that they previously had little experience with, and was of particular benefit to their placement.
