RCS student now officer in Albury SES

Albury, 8 September - Last week, RCS medical student, Amanda Cohn, was promoted to Officer in charge of volunteer recruitment and retention for the Albury Unit of the State Emergency Service.

"I've really enjoyed my time as an SES volunteer," said Ms Cohn.

"It was a fantastic way to meet people here and become involved in the community outside of the hospital - the Albury Unit are amazing and one of the reasons I wanted to stay here next year. A team from the SES will also be participating in our mass casualty exercise organised by Dr. Moyle during our PRINT term!"

Ms Cohn moved from UNSW's Sydney campus to the Albury campus in her fifth year, and hasn't looked back.

"Everyone at the Albury Rural Clinical School is so friendly and happy to help," she said.

"We get to work alongside consultants, have hands-on teaching - we're involved in patient care as well - and I never experienced anything like that in a Sydney hospital."

Ms Cohn plans to stay on in Albury for further training after she completes her medical degree at the end of this year.
