    Obstetric anaesthesia in the outback! The challenges of practice in remote hospitals

    A huge thank you to Dr Casey Parker for his insights and life experience working as a GP Anaesthetist, emergency doctor and GP in all parts of Western Australia.

TessFB ,

High yield +++

Wonderful podcast, the most high yield study one can do whilst out on a run/cooking dinner/taking notes.
Thanks to all the brave candidates.

Lahiru, so appreciative of what you do! Would love it if some of your other videos from YouTube were also available to listen to as podcast episodes... makes it so much easier to stay healthy/active and not waste time!
