About

 Dr Susan Gorton has a vision is to contribute to the ongoing improvement in the care of sick babies and children in remote, rural, regional and tropical Australia. In her current role as a fulltime senior lecturer with the James Cook University College of Medicine and Dentistry she works tirelessly to provide opportunities for medical and physician assistant students to learn about the care of sick neonates and children. She is very grateful to patients and their families as well as the many clinical, academic and professional colleagues who make many of these opportunities possible.

In the past Sue lived in rural and remote Australia for many years. She considered it a privilege to have worked as a paediatrician in these areas.

Sue’s PhD research explored pathways between school students in rural and remote areas and the health professional careers. Her other research interests have included solutions to the shortage of health professionals in rural and remote Australia to better serve the people, young and old, who live there.
