The 1Medical – Australasian Adventures Programme

Hear from Dr Alex Atkinson about his recent move from the UK to Australia taking a position as a medical officer at the Royal Darwin Hospital in the emergency department. 

As part of our series of webinars covering doctors and their Australasian Adventures, Alex truly has taken the leap with his adventure starting in the famous Northern Territory, home to the incredible Kakadu National Park.  

Live from Ireland, Peter Healy will be asking the questions and as you will hear it's not all about crocodiles and cork hats....although that is available if that is what you want. 

You will also hear a market update from Ben Lepke and an immigration update from Maroun Elias both presenting from their home city of Sydney, Australia.
