Irish medical students given taste of life in country WA

Laura GrubisaNarrogin Observer

Four medical students from Ireland are calling Narrogin home for three weeks as part of an exchange program with the University of Western Australia.

Maria McWalter, Marize Bakhet, Megan Conneely and Finbar Murphy are students from NUI Galway taking part in the exchange program.

They will undertake training at Narrogin Regional Hospital for three weeks.

They are already over halfway through their exchange and have visited Margaret River and Albany as part of their trip.

The group visited the Narrogin Men’s Shed last week, spending time answering questions which ranged from medical to political topics from men’s shed members.

The students haven’t started specialist training yet but have interests in psychiatry, general practice and emergency medicine.

All four of them also have plans to travel and work abroad once they have completed their studies.
