During this journey she developed a strong interest in emergency medicine, medical education and point of care ultrasound. Susan has held different positions within the ACRRM assessment team including some time as the principal examiner for StAMPS across all modalities. She currently works as a consultant in the emergency department at Southwest Health, Warrnambool and holds a senior lecturer position with Deakin University. She has a great passion for mentoring the next generation of rural generalists and is a self-confessed ultrasound ‘tragic’!
