Dr Mirna Hunter

Dr Mirna Hunter

MD, BMEDSCI (Hons), Sydney NSW

Mirna is an enthusiastic junior doctor whose journey has taken her from clowning with Dr Patch Adams in Morocco, to learning Aerospace Medicine with NASA in Houston. After graduating from Medicine from UNSW in 2013 she undertook internships and residencies with NSW Health; became an active representative on multiple hospital committees, undertook fourteen quality & safety improvement projects, and won Junior Medical Officer of the year at her respective hospitals in 2014 and 2016. She’s recently returned to Sydney after living the nomadic lifestyle of an unaccredited ophthalmology trainee on the Lions Outback Vision Van with the Fred Hollows Fellows in Western Australia. The traveling eye clinic (a huge 18m long semi-trailer) provides clinical, surgical and telehealth services to 23 different rural/remote communities. Her firsthand experience of the health care inequalities facing hard working Aussies in rural areas prompted her to join the Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators and the Digital Health Agency to help deliver solutions to these complex problems.
