Interim Chief Executive Lee Gregory visited Mona Vale Hospital earlier this month and got the chance to meet the hospital’s two new intern doctors.
Recent medical graduates Lauren Wilson and Christina Kim (see front page) have started their first term in their intern program working in Mona Vale’s Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit and Beachside Rehabilitation Unit.
Christina said her experience so far at Mona Vale had been memorable start to the beginning of her career.
“It is a beautiful place to work by the beach, with a strong culture of teamwork within the staff with a focus on holistic care of our patients,” Christina said.
“I’m placed at beachside rehabilitation centre, which mostly deals with stroke victims and amputees.
“Recovery is often slow, but patients leave feeling more confident in their abilities and strength and it’s been a pleasure to both be a part of and a witness to their journeys.”
