N.B. - Excellent candidates would specifically discuss what personal and professional development they have done to address community needs eg. they are aware Australia has an aging population so specifically picked an aged care or general medicine term, another eg. is they are aware GPs often see a lot of paediatric patients so in their ED term they made the effort to discuss with their team leader to be rostered into paediatric section.
