Hospitals across the district welcomed their new Junior Medical Officers (JMOs) this week, after they successfully completed their orientation.
All up, 79 doctors have joined NSLHD, with 60 shared between Royal North Shore and Ryde, 17 to Hornsby and two to Mona Vale.
JMOs also attended a welcome evening at the Kirribilli Club on Wednesday evening to get to know each other as well as hear about the resources available to them through the district.
Chairperson of the JMO Wellbeing Board Committee Dr Linda Xu said she was looking forward to working closely with the district’s newest doctors.
“Start of intern year can be a challenging and stressful time,” she said.
“We hope they enjoy the start of a long journey in medicine. The NSLHD JMO Wellbeing Board Committee is committed to improving your time here in NSLHD.
“We would welcome any new JMOs to join us on the committee and contact us with ideas throughout the year. Look out for various initiatives and events throughout the year.”
