“I do feel think of myself as Nina from Offspring…. with all the internal monologue going on,” says Dr. Colinda Launeke, one of seven first and second-year junior doctors profiled in Nine’s upcoming factual series Young Doctors.
Despite it’s similarity in title to a favourite soapie, the eight-part series will be built around real life drama at Newcastle’s John Hunter hospital.
These docs are all aged in their 20s, newly qualified enthusiastic professionals making their first diagnosis, performing their first emergency surgery, and facing their first Saturday night in accident and emergency. They also share accommodation facilities, giving an insight into how being young scrubs impacts on personal and social lives.
It premieres soon on Nine.
