Obstetrics registrar AMA Doctor in Training of the Year

4 Jun 2019

Dr Rebecca Ryder, a senior obstetrics registrar at Sunshine Coast University Hospital, has been named the AMA Doctor in Training of the Year for 2019.

Dr Ryder’s colleagues describe her as a natural leader, as approachable, compassionate, sensible, and decisive, who balances her responsibilities as the mother of two young children with her high workload as a senior registrar, and her mentoring and charitable work.

She is currently completing a research project on trainee resilience, and has surveyed every obstetrics and gynaecology trainee in Australia and New Zealand.
