Tash Thompson

Tash Thompson is a Paediatric Registrar at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.

Her medical career has been an unusual one. She studied biomedical science and gained a graduate diploma in education before studying to become a doctor – an interest she’d had since high school.

 

Unfortunately, like many of us, Tash found the long hours working as a junior doctor in stressful and unsupported roles difficult. Her passion for music and other hobbies had been left by the wayside; medicine consumed her life – but not in a good way.

 

In Dr Sam Hazledine’s conversations with exceptional people, Tash talks about how she regained control of her career and successfully mixed her interests in education with medicine.
