Critical Flair

The musings of a critical care doctor



This is a blog dedicated to the junior doctors out there. They are in the engine room of our public hospitals, striving to provide the most humane care to patients and their families.

Medicine is a brave new world for many of us. This blog mixes my personal reflections with career tips – from planning to surviving. I write to you as a colleague. I hope you find a familiar voice within these pages.

I’m currently in my third year of training, and am on the critical care pathway towards anaesthesia. I was born and raised in Tamworth, in country New South Wales, and am an advocate for rural health. We need to smash the health inequities that exist between city and country.

I believe in education as a tool for empowerment and social mobility.

When I’m not at work, I’m a regular at my local Toastmaster’s club, learning skills in communication and leadership. I’m an average powerlifter, but love getting under the barbell and getting better every training session.
