Dr Catherine Limberis — A leap of faith
Having completed her general medicine training in South Africa, Dr Catherine Limberis and her husband decided to make the big move to Australia. But she only knew about Australia’s big cities and imagined that all the spaces in between were largely empty. In the end, she has found that accepting a position in Orange in regional NSW was “the best thing we every could have done”. Dr Limberis says she has had abundant career opportunities, she adores the friendly and inclusive culture, and that she’s fallen in love with the landscape and its wildlife. Her advice to other foreign-trained doctors considering a move is that regional Australia has “so much to offer”.
