    Dr Ewen McPhee

    Master of Rural and Remote Medicine

    As a very busy rural doctor wanting to better understand what I do, and where I fit, the Master of Rural and Remote Medicine provided context to my work and a foundation on which to build my research and health professional education skills. It has been transformative in rekindling my enthusiasm for rural medicine.
