Shiloh Medical Practice in Deniliquin has welcomed a new doctor to its team.
Dr Bidisha Kalita had her first day at the Edwardes St practice on Monday last week.
She is completing her general practitioner term one training, which generally takes six months.
Dr Kalita said this was her first time living in rural Australia.
She moved to Cairns in 2006 after completing her medical studies in India and has since had experience in numerous roles.
These include working in paediatrics, emergency and medicine at Cairns Base Hospital, and completing a Diploma of Child Health at Westmead Children’s Hospital, Sydney.
Dr Kalita has moved to Deniliquin with her three year-old daughter, Riha, and parents-in-law, while her husband, Vibhuti, is working as an ear, nose and throat specialist based at Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.
‘‘I was lucky enough to apply for this rural posting and be accepted,’’ Dr Kalita said.
‘‘It’s been beautiful, and the practice has provided a very comfortable stay.
‘‘Everyone is really nice. I haven’t seen much of the town yet but I’m planning to do that on the weekends.’’
