“Aim for the stars and keep your options open” - Marni Mcfarlane
A devoted medical student who was raised in a tiny, tight-knit community, Marni McFarlane is living her dream in outback NSW. In this episode, Marni shares her journey from a rural upbringing on the Eyre Peninsula to pursuing a career in medicine. She didn't initially consider becoming a doctor until a teacher mentioned it, and she decided to take the leap. Marni talks about her pathway to medical school, her challenges with financial support, and the importance of achieving a work-life balance. She highlights the value of keeping your options open and speaks lovingly about living and working in Broken Hill. With a heart firmly rooted in the country, Marni hopes to return to her rural community one day and help address the shortage of doctors there.
