“I did my intern placement at Royal Darwin Hospital. From there I went on to work in regional Health services in the Kimberly specializing in Aboriginal health. My aim is to continue working in rural areas of Australia in the General Practice and Emergency Department setting.”
While in PNG, Dr Matt Kelly will take part in Integrated Health Patrols in New Ireland and Western Province offering mobile, on the spot triage, testing and treatment, with a significant emphasis on training and support to the accompanying local PNG staff.

This is health care at the frontline of Australia’s closest neighbour.
