Why did you choose this location?
To explore a part of Vic I hadn’t been to before.
What have been the highlight of your contract?
Getting to know the women well, as it’s a smaller population so less women are booked to birth here.

If you like older style towns with old buildings and charming cottages/old homesteads then it is a lovely town.
What essential items do you take with you when you leave home to work on a contract?

Final Word: What is your top tip for other health professionals when choosing their next contract?
Just do it! You have nothing to lose and so much to gain! You meet so many great people and colleagues from different parts of Australia/different backgrounds. You grow both as a clinician and person by throwing yourself into different environments and recommend doing it at least once in your career.
