Our latest Alfred registrar on rotation from the Alfred Hospital is Dr. Nathan Wong. Nate completed his Bachelor of Medicine/Surgery at Monash University in 2018 and finished his physician training at the Alfred, during which he completed a Masters of Public Health through Newcastle University. He is currently an Advanced Trainee in General and Acute Care Medicine, and will undertake his first year of Cardiology Advanced Training in Geelong in 2024. Nate is interested in all aspects of cardiac care; from managing acutely ill inpatients to minimising cardiovascular risk within a clinic setting. He is particularly enjoying the hands-on experience of scanning with the echo techs and the pearls of wisdom provided by Dr Soward.
Having recently taken up bouldering in his free time, Nate’s biggest disappointment on arriving in Mildura was its absence of rock-climbing gyms! Instead, he’s spent most of his free time at Sip or Fossey’s and makes sure to get down to the driving range on his afternoons off.
