NZMA is delighted to announce the 2021 PGY1 Representative on the Doctors-in-Training Council is Anastasia Shoebridge.
Anastasia will be commencing her PGY1 year in Christchurch, after completing her degree in Dunedin. She has a particular interest in the surgical specialties and hopes to pursue a career in surgery.
"I have a keen interest in representing the interests and issues of our cohort. For the past three years I have been in a similar role, being an advocate for students throughout ALM as a member of the Student Staff Liaison Committee at the Dunedin School of Medicine. This role will enable me to continue being involved in advocating for the welfare and interests of our cohort. In the role of PGY1 rep I will strive to continue to make improvements for junior doctors both now and for those who come after us. I look forward to the year to come and this adventure we are all about to begin together!"
