Choosing the right speciality can be overwhelming. But the wrong choice can cost you years and thousands of dollars in training fees.
I’m here to help you choose the best career path for you and then get you moving towards it faster.
Whether you’re choosing a specialty, applying for a training program, need support to re-enter the workforce or even thinking of leaving medicine altogether, I can help.
A bit about me:
I graduated from the University of Newcastle and I’m a specialist medical administrator. My formal qualifications are BMed, DipRANZCOG, MHA (UNSW) and FRACMA.
After working in hospital administration, junior doctor education, medical regulation and medico-legal roles, I’ve met doctors (at all levels) who were dissatisfied with their careers because of ill-informed choices. I saw a real need for a career mentor with a specialised medical background. I was astounded to think that 30 years after my own graduation, there was still a complete lack of personalised, impartial career advice available for students and doctors.
So I launched Insight Medical Consulting in 2016 as a complete career guidance service offering advice across the whole spectrum: choosing a specialty, getting onto training programs, changing direction or returning to work after a break. I offer personal, individual career mentoring, tailored exactly to your needs.
The service I provide is completely independent with no affiliation to any university, hospital or training program, ensuring the advice I give is impartial and always 100% confidential.
I work with clients to develop a plan for achieving their specific career goals and provide all the support they need to help get them there, including interview preparation and CV editing services. I pride myself on attention to detail and giving clients the highest level of personal service and ongoing support.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with students and doctors across Australia at every level and in all specialities. Not only do I have the experience and expertise to successfully guide them every step of the way, I also have a unique awareness of the challenges doctors can face throughout their careers.
I have significant experience working with international medical graduates, doctors whose careers have been impacted by health issues and with those who are looking for an alternative to clinical medicine. I am passionate about assisting doctors who are returning to medicine after a break or who are considering a change of direction or even leaving medicine. This is truly some of the most rewarding work I do.
I’m genuinely interested in getting to know you as a person and identifying what makes you unique. I believe that this is key to making the right specialty choice and to succeeding in the competitive selection process. Ever the optimist and always enthusiastic, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve great things, and I’m committed to helping you succeed. Let me help you make the right career choice, one that suits you and your lifestyle and allows you to have a long, happy and truly satisfying career.
I know your time is limited so, if a face to face meeting doesn’t suit you, I offer the convenience of Skype consultations and some appointments outside of normal working hours.
Get clear about your career!
Feel confident and supported every step of the way.
