    To: Amy K

    Subject: Successful online publication - Wollongong Neurology

    Dear Amy,

    Congrats on your successful submission to Neurology which was published online this week


    My compliments on pursuing this during your time with us in the Neurology Department at Wollongong Hospital. Your

    submission was awarded E-Pearl of the Week a great achievement.

    Kind regards,


    Absolutely! Research as a BPT is optional & can be done

    in a number of ways, usually through introductions with

    various head of departments & consultants.


  • Can I do teaching?

    Yes teaching is an expected part of your BPT role

    UNSW clinical school @ POWH

    UNSW Rural clinical school @ Port Macquarie

    University of Wollongong @TWH

    Teaching on the Run workshops

    Conjoint associate lecturer UNSW

  • Do you reserve spots for local residents? No, there is no quota system, all candidates are ranked

    based on merit of application & interview.
