Feras Mirdad – New South Wales

Hi my name Feras I’m a final year medical student. Being an international graduate; two weeks ago I was faced with the real possibility of missing out on the opportunity to continue my medical career. The thought of leaving a place I have lived in, for close to 10 years, is very sad. I completed high school in Sydney and have made some lifelong friends, and over the years I have come to deeply love the Australian way of life.

Without an internship I would be faced with a life in limbo, where I’d have no medical registration and hence no chance of getting a training position in the future  I Through my medical rotations I’ve also seen and learnt about the shortage of health resources in many regions of Australia, and with a great love for rural areas, I would be eager to help the shortages in those areas. Haematology has always been an intriguing part of medicine and I plan to pursue this field considering Australia’s ageing population and need for specialisits in this field.

It is very disappointing that the Australian community stands to lose more than 180 bright, talented and eager to serve students, especially at a time when this country is in great need. Many of these students are good friends and I am humbled by their fierce dedication to serve their patients and community.

Feras is still waiting to hear if he will get an internship. If you want to help him, please support the #interncrisis campaign.Take Action
