Ms Michayla Doherty

MBBS, Monash University

BMedSc (Hons) Student, NTRI

Ms Doherty has completed four of five years in her MBBS training, deciding to intermit in 2017 in order to complete a year of research with the NTRI. Michayla has a strong passion for Emergency Medicine and research, choosing the NTRI for its strength in these areas. Over the year, she will be investigating the differences between elderly and young patients involved in major trauma. As our population continues to age, the burden of the elderly on the health care system is ever-growing. This project aims to identifying key areas in our management and care that can be further optimised to better treat our ageing patients.
