Senior Resident Position
Obstetrics and Gynaecology, John Hunter Hospital
Bachelor of Medicine, 2009
As a seven-year-old girl growing up in Zimbabwe the dream of becoming a doctor seemed an impossible aspiration for Mercy Madzivanyika. But now that little girl’s dreams are a reality. Her entree into the study of medicine was daunting. “Walking into the interview as a candidate of the Bachelor of Medicine program, I was wondering if I had answered in a satisfactory manner to make it in. I did, and suddenly I was in a world of anatomy and pathophysiology.”
Since graduating, Mercy has worked in five different hospitals, each time in varying divisions of medicine, taking away more skill and knowledge from each term and allowed Mercy to discover a specific area of interest. Mercy has now secured a Senior Resident position in obstetrics and gynaecology at the John Hunter Hospital, commencing in 2012.
