Melissa Brittle
Trustee (New Zealand)

Melissa is an Urgent Care Doctor working in Christchurch, New Zealand. Her interest in global health began when she was travelling in Asia in 2011. This led her to make a career change into medicine. While working in Myanmar with Yangon Medical school, she saw the additional challenges medical students face in countries where there is a lack of accessible funding. This can determine between those who can complete their studies and go on to contribute to the healthcare in their country and those who are unable to.  She joined Medic to Medic to help address these inequalities in accessing medical education in other countries.
