Dr Szewczyk is currently working as an Obstetrics and Gynaecology Service Registrar at SALHN. Obstetrics and Gynaecology is her passion and field of interest and she is currently working and undertaking further study and research in this area with a plan to apply for training in South Australia.
As a female, junior doctor working in a time where junior doctors are faced with a training bottleneck that continues to worsen and is leading to increased competitiveness, pressure to perform, burnout and mental health issues, and a person living in a world where there are overwhelming threats to our health, wellbeing and planet, Hannah feels that she cannot sit by and do nothing.
The Australian Medical Association (AMA) exists to represent and support doctors and to advocate on behalf of Australian communities on issues pertaining to health. The AMA leads health policy debates and has a strong voice that can make a difference when it comes to the issues that we are facing as doctors and as members of the community.
Hannah's experience as a member of council on the Flinders Medical Students’ Society (FMSS) executive committee and the Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) council gave her a love for policy and advocacy and an understanding of the processes of a council. It is this experience, and her belief in the influence of the AMA, that has led to her interest in becoming a member of the AMA(SA) Branch Council.
