The Rural Clinical School has welcomed four new medical students to Northam this week. Nyomi Uduman, Teegan Garner, Kimberly Willcocks and Vanessa Khouri have all made the move to town to complete practical experience at the local media centres, clinics and hospital in their third year of their medical degrees.
All the women said despite only living in the town for a week they had all had great first impressions of Northam and the people.
Ms Khouri admits she had to look up the location of the town on a map.
She hopes she can gain valuable experience, much like that she received when she worked with RCS over east.
“I love that we get to become a part of the community,” she said.
Ms Garner grew up in Wyalkatchem so the move wasn’t as far as some. She said she feels prepared knowing what to expect during her year at the RSC.
“Everyone is generally a little more friendly and willing to have you learn from first hand experience in the country,” she said.
