Dr. Katharyn Hussey
Six-months at Three Rivers Medical for Dr. Katharyn Hussey.
Dr. Katharyn Hussey could not have timed things better - her six-month contract at Three Rivers Medical means she gets to dodge the English winter and enjoy a great Gisborne summer.
“When the opportunity came up to apply to an overseas work programme, I put New Zealand as my first choice,” she says.
Katharyn first qualified in physiology – starting her studies at Scotland's University of St. Andrews. “After I graduated, I did a bit of work experience with a surgeon, and he asked if I had ever considered medicine,” she says. “So, I looked into it, and went on to study at the London School of Medicine.”
Placements in areas from Essex to London followed, including five years at hospitals in the South West county of Dorset.
Katharyn and partner Rob are enjoying living at the beach in Gisborne and have bought a campervan so they can see as much of Aotearoa as time allows.
