Offering a rare insight into the world of a surgeon-in-the-making from one who has actually survived it. In conversation with Dr Cassandra Szoeke, author of Secrets of Women's Healthy Ageing.

Sometimes in hospital people die - but not all of them should. With the frenetic pace of a psychological thriller, The Registrar offers a rare insight into the world of a surgeon-in-the-making from one who has survived it. Told with compassion, skill and emotional heart, this gripping and moving novel goes behind the headlines to reveal the human experience of being both doctor and patient in a medical system at breaking point.

The Registrar was shortlisted for the 2021 Victorian Premier's Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.

Dr Janakiramanan is a reconstructive plastic surgeon with particular expertise in complex hand and wrist surgery. She has wide experience working in the public and private health sector. She is a seasoned public speaker and advocate on issues including health equity, gender equity, and diversity and inclusion. She was also one of the medical leads in the Kids off Nauru campaign and in bringing together the Australian medical community and operationalising the Australian Medevac legislation to facilitate medical care for refugees in offshore detention. Neela is a regular contributor to Women's Agenda, and has also written for The Age, Sydney Morning Herald, The Saturday Paper, and often appears on ABC's The Drum.
