Your Medical Future: Top tips and insights from those who have gone before

In these monthly webinar sessions short presentations from current registrars and consultants offer you insight into their pathway choices and provide tips to guide you. There will be opportunity to ask questions of our guest speakers.

For our second webinar, we are excited to introduce Dr Michelle Murphy, Director of Respiratory Medicine at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Dr Melissa Carroll who is a Dermatologist working in Brisbane.


Dr Michelle Murphy
Director of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, Princess Alexandra Hospital

Dr Michelle Murphy graduated from UQ last century. She considered becoming a surgeon, then an oncologist, but is now the Director of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.  

Michelle has a longstanding interest in medical education, particularly of specialists in training. She is Chair of the Queensland Respiratory Advanced Training panel and sat on the RACP Specialty Training Committee in Respiratory and Sleep Medicine for many years.

Michelle enjoys the outdoors, both hiking and the beach, and has travelled to all continents bar Africa. Thanks to COVID-19, in her downtime she is now more likely to be found walking her dog up Mt Coot-Tha or watching Nordic Noir, assuming she can wrestle the TV remote from her two teenage daughters.

Michelle will discuss what a Respiratory and Sleep Physician does, and her take on what factors you should consider when choosing your pathway in medicine.

Dr Melissa Carroll
Consultant Dermatologist, Bulimba Dermatology

Dr Melissa Carroll is a dermatologist working in private practice, having completed her internship, JHO year and dermatology training in Brisbane.

Melissa has three children – born before, during and after the registrar years. Playing trumpet and piano, her love of music has been a constant throughout her life, participating in the Med Revue, starting an award-winning community orchestra and even helping her to get into dermatology.

In her talk, Melissa will discuss what being a Dermatologist is like, the pros of the specialty (not sure of any cons!) and the application process for the program.
