Dr Senny Surendran — scoring goals in a regional paradise
Lismore-based Dr Senny Surendran is a junior doctor whose path to medicine was certainly unconventional. A passionate young sportsman who started out as a physiotherapist, Senny's life took unexpected turns, including time spent teaching and playing hockey in The Netherlands and working on the Canadian ski fields. But a desire to contribute more to society led him to medical school. As a mature-age student, he faced challenges, but found his feet and made lots of new friends at the University of Wollongong, which focuses on regional, rural and remote health. Now settled in Lismore with his family, Senny enjoys the regional lifestyle, and is grateful for the opportunities to learn and grow as a doctor in a regional paradise.
