Fiona Stanley Hospital has welcomed 60 Resident Medical Officers (RMOs) from Ireland and the UK who have arrived for a six-month placement.

The doctors spent the week familiarising themselves with FSH’s world-class facilities and completing their induction program.

After induction, each RMO will complete rotations in a range of clinical areas across Fiona Stanley, Fremantle and Rockingham Hospitals, bringing their valuable perspective to patient care and learning from our talented clinicians.

RMO Dr Christopher Leavy, of Dublin, said he decided to come to Perth for a change of lifestyle and the excellent learning opportunities provided by FSH.

Dr Leavy said the program had been recommended to him by friends, and he was looking forward to experiencing a “new system, new culture and new experiences”.

FSH Director of Medical Education Dr Greg Sweetman welcomed the RMOs, saying the program would provide direct benefits to the hospital.

“The RMOs will be exposed to a fantastic range of learning experiences during their time here, putting them in good stead for the next phase of their careers."

“They also bring plenty of knowledge and experience to share with our staff, as well as making a significant contribution to patient care."

“We wish them all the best for their placements.”
