"It is now over 5 years since I graduated and I am still completely committed to a medical career in rural and regional Queensland. At the moment I am a Medical Officer at Weipa Hospital, Cape York. We only have 12 beds and it is over 900km to the main Cairns Hospital, so every day is different!"
Dr Emily Vagg, AMA Queensland Foundation Scholarship graduate 2009 - Medical Officer, Weipa Hospital, Cape York
