  • Dimity

    DimityMedical Transcriptionist

    I have been a medical secretary/transcriptionist for around 30 years, mainly in Melbourne but also in Cape Town, South Africa, London, England and Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. My work allows me to delve into the intricacies of medicine without actually being a doctor or nurse.

    I originally graduated from Melbourne University with a B.A. degree and taught typing and shorthand, English, Art, French and German in secondary schools for many years. I eventually abandoned this for the computer and have since only worked in hospitals and private practice, especially enjoying correcting doctors' English! My outside interests include writing, reading, travel, art, languages, gardens and animals.
