Dr Emily Isham
General Practitioner (and Rare Cancers Australia Content Manager) Dr Emily Isham grew up in the Democratic Republic of Congo. After high school in rural Victoria, she undertook her medical training at The University of Melbourne, graduating in 2007. Since then, she moved to Tasmania with her husband, where she undertook some obstetrics & gynaecology, and paediatric training, a Masters of International Public Health, and specialised in General Practice. She also established an NGO back in the DR Congo. She and her husband have had 5 children over the last 12 years, but had to parent one of their sons through cancer, and, devastatingly, he died at age 6. Outside of work, Emily enjoys long-distance running, music and spending time outdoors with her children." I'm not primarily a skin cancer doctor - I'm a GP with extra skin cancer qualifications.
