My name is Dr Paul Labana, and I am relatively new to actual technical medical writing.
I qualified as a doctor in 2001 (Royal Free & University College Medical School, UK). I also completed an intercalated BSc. in Primary Health Care in 2000 through the University of London, focusing on medical anthropology, critical appraisal of medical literature, and consultation relating to General Practice. For this degree, I also completed an original 10000-word thesis on the knowledge and attitude of GPs towards herbal remedies and their role in clinical practice.
In 2002, after my role as a Pre-Registration Medical and Surgical house officer (F1), I worked as a Public Health Doctor in the borough of Croydon, Surrey (UK), for a year specialising in the health needs of refugees, asylum seekers, and social inequalities as determinants of health.
I permanently immigrated to Australia via Perth, WA, in 2004 and haven't looked back since.
With 20 years of clinical medical practice, my medical vocabulary is far and wide!
Some of my strengths are medical education for CME purposes, training, examination processes/question writing, and mentoring.
I am always open to any other opportunities, should they be appropriate and suitable, where I can deliver high-quality work.
All the best, and take care throughout these rather odd times!
