Dr Charlie is a general surgical registrar from South Australia and a current Master of Surgery research student. His areas of interest include tropical medicine, global surgery and trauma/acute care surgery. He has previously been to PNG as a medical student and this inspired him to return as a doctor. While based in Kiunga, Western Province, he will conduct outreach clinics in communities that rarely see a doctor and will use this opportunity to help train local health workers and offer community education. When not on patrol, he looks forward to spending time in the surgical clinic and operating theatre in Kiunga Hospital.
