Senior RMO Royal Hospital for Women, PhD candidate UNSW
Dr Georgina Armstrong graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2012 with a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (Hons). Early in her career, Georgina developed a passion for Gynaecology and sought opportunities to expand her knowledge and exposure in the field. In 2009, she pursued a year of clinical research with WHRIA at the Royal Hospital for Women under the supervision of Professor Thierry Vancaillie. It was in this environment that her passion for the clinical and surgical aspects of Gynaecology was fueled. As a member of the WHRIA research team, her research interests include chronic Pelvic Pain, Pudendal Neuralgia and Asherman’s syndrome.
In 2011, Georgina travelled to rural New Zealand and Nepal to experience greater diversity in women’s health and birthing practices. As a junior doctor, she has continued to actively collaborate in research projects with WHRIA, which have eventuated in publications in a variety of peer-reviewed journals. In 2014 Georgina successfully completed her internship and residency at the Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney. In 2015, she is looking forward to completing her Senior Residency at the Royal Hospital for Women where she will begin her PhD studies on the topic of Pudendal Neuralgia.
