For those of you who are new to My Health Career, my name is Amanda Griffiths and I am the founder. I graduated from QUT’s School of Optometry in 2003 with First Class Honours. Please click here to access my speaker profile.
I have over 12 years’ experience as an optometrist, have supervised optometry students in a clinical setting, and have practiced everywhere from predominantly indigenous communities in Cape York to some of Queensland’s most prestigious suburbs.
I have personally interviewed over 30 health practitioners to put together the 100+ videos featured on the website. I am constantly talking to health professionals and industry leaders about what’s happening in their area in health. I also write many of the articles on My Health Career, and organise guest posts from practitioners and organisations.
In 2014 alone I presented for organisations including the Career Development Association Australia, the Career Education Association Victoria, myfuture, the Partnership Brokers and the Queensland Association of Student Advisers. I have a series of ready-to-go presentations, and am able to tailor a presentation depending on what you are looking for.
In 2014 and 2015 I was a Master of Ceremonies (MC) at the finals day of the HealthFusion Team Challenge. The HFTC is a national competition which immerses university students in an interdisciplinary health care competition.
