Another year with an exciting Careers Night! Dr. Vijay Roach, Vice-President of the Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and Chairman of The Gidget Foundation, gave a talk on the life as an ObGyn.

We had the opportunity to have Dr. Sue Jacobs speak on the factors underlying disparities in obstetric and gynaecological health outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous women. Dr. Jacobs' shared success stories from her experience at her gynaecology clinic at the Redfern Aboriginal Medical Service.

Medical Students interested in pursuing a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology heard from two fantastic speakers: Dr Vijay Roach, the current vice-president of RANZCOG and chairman of the Gidget Foundation, and Dr Joanne Ludlow, who runs the Early Pregnancy Assessment Service at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Their insights and advice were very well received by all students.
