Health alert: Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Kids a passion for new paeds docs

5 March 2020

New Redland Hospital doctor Kirsty Kimlin knew she wanted to be a paediatrician when she was in Grade 8. "Even though I didn't know what that was at the time," she said.

Having just completed her fellowship, Dr Kimlin said she was thrilled to be at Redland Hospital which offered a community feel and where she could provide care closer to home.

"I am also very interested in medical education, particularly teaching med students and residents. I was the medical education fellow at Queensland Children's Hospital for 18 months.”

Also new to the Redland Hospital team, Dr Jamie Ross said he was born and bred in the Redlands and was extremely happy to be working and helping kids in his 'home town'.

"I went to Redlands College, played for the local cricket team and my family still lives in the Redlands," he said.

“Kids just want to be kids, and whatever I can do to help put their troubles aside and help them to keep growing and developing is what motivated me into paediatrics."

For fun Dr Ross said he was a triathlete in his spare time, competing in Iron Man challenges while Dr Kimlin said she loved to travel and had just returned from Switzerland.
