Poutine, snow, and Monash Medical School seminars

1 November 2016

It’s not all that often that we get an Australian university faculty visit in our tiny town of Perth! OzTREKK recently had the pleasure of hosting Julie Baxter and Kerri Mott from the Monash Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences, visiting Canada for the first time for the Monash Medical School seminars and interviews.

Poutine, snow, and Monash Medical School seminars
Julie Baxter and Kerri Mott, and their first Eastern Ontario snowfall!

Jaime had the chance to take them out on the town and out to a local pub, O’Reilly’s. Here, Kerri and Julie got the chance to chow down on some regular Canadian poutine, which they quite enjoyed!
Not only was this their first time making the trip to Perth, and getting into some poutine, they had another “first” while here, too. It ended up snowing on Oct. 27, which is crazy, but I think they both really enjoyed it! Amanda had actually advised Julie a few weeks back that simply bringing along a “light jacket” would do. Surprise!
The Monash ladies arrived in the OzTREKK office the next morning bundled up from their walk over. After getting down to medical school business, the whole office sat down for some morning tea!
After tea and visiting, we were well into the afternoon and the ladies had to head out to catch their train! I think it’s definitely possible that Kerri and Julie may make the trip back again—hopefully with some better weather for them next time, perhaps more permanently as there was talk of peeking in local real estate office windows!
We would be happy to welcome them back any time!
