William is a Surgical Registrar at Royal Perth Hospital in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery.
He has been keen to become a doctor since the age of eight, after growing up watching Patch Adams and Dr. House on TV.
Entering medical school directly from high school, he first became interested in Ear, Nose and Throat surgery during his time as a student on the Rural Clinical School, where he spent several months practising medicine in remote indigenous communities in the Kimberley in far north Western Australia.
During medical school he studied in sub-Saharan Africa, Berlin and Tokyo, winning the Alan Charters Prize for his elective overseas studies. A highlight of his time at St Luke’s Hospital in Tokyo was his mispronunciation of the Japanese word for “studying abroad”. It was only after a month he discovered he had been telling everyone that he was getting divorced.
After graduating from the University of Western Australia in 2016, he worked at Fiona Stanley Hospital for three years, representing junior doctors as President of the Stanley Medical Officers Society, and winning Medical Resident of the Year in 2019.
Will is currently completing a Masters of Surgery at the University of Western Australia. He has published and presented research both nationally and internationally.
