ACEM Interview

Posted by Anne Marie Serrano on October 8, 2009

On Tuesday Fergus has his interview with the Australia College of Emergency Medicine. It was “uneventful” as he likes to say. No trick questions and they mostly wanted to know what he did at his various hospitals (as if ED’s are that different).  He arranged to visit one of the interviewer’s hospital the next day. They said it could be “as soon” as November for the committee to meet and a decision to us by December. So it looks like we won’t be coming back until after the first of the new year.

It is probably wise that we are taking the kids back to Kansas since it could be as much as six months more before we can get back here. We have been having a nice visit with Helen and Eric. Today they headed off to the Great Barrier Reef for a vacation which was already planned before we knew we were coming. Tonight we will go to Jenny and Gary’s and then Fergus flies back tomorrow. I will be staying for another week. I will pack the kids up and ship them off next week and Fergus will pick them up in Kansas City. I tell you it’s more complicated than flying with children – but probably more relaxing for us than for human parents.


While we’ve been here we were able to visit Bill and Sue and their four ‘dales at Wombat Bend. I even got to see my buddie wombat in this burrow. The billabong is full to the brim with all the rain they have been getting and you can barely notice where all the burned vegetation had been for all the green grass and new branches. A much calmer surrounding compared to our last visit.

We’ve had a relaxing visit this time without the stress of leaving the kids and adjusting to returning to the states. I will try to write more in a couple of days.
