Australia has many export hits including iron ore, coal and gold. Another important one that’s easily overlooked is high-quality education. Over 500,000 students from all over the world currently study in Australia. Medical science is particularly popular. What is it like to train as a doctor in a new country and a different culture without any family around? My guest has been through that and just graduated as a doctor. She will tell us about the ups and downs of her journey.

Boiling Point host Cat chats with my guest is Dr Rose Phan. Rose is originally from Vietnam and just recently graduated in medical science at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.
