How can Insight Medical Careers help you?

My ethos for Insight Medical Careers is first and foremost getting to know you as a person and identifying what makes you unique. I believe that this is key to effective career planning, making the right specialty choice and succeeding in the competitive selection process. This is not something a one-size-fits-all approach can reliably give you.

I work with you to develop a plan for achieving your specific career goals and provide all the support you need to get there, including interview preparation, career planning and CV editing. I pride myself on attention to detail and giving clients the highest level of personal service and ongoing support.

Working with Dr Jo Hely

Making the right choices in your medical career can be intimidating and overwhelming. In such a high pressure, high reward work environment, I believe those choosing medicine deserve tailored, expert advice to ensure they are supported to make the right choices. I’m committed to giving you the opportunity to have a successful and fulfilling career that you have been empowered to choose.

I have an in-depth appreciation for the challenges medical professionals face and the need for balance, clarity and support.

Tailored… I know everyone has different goals

I take a personalised approach that considers the bigger picture of your career, personal and life goals.

Results… I take your success personally

I’m personally invested in each and every client and go above and beyond to support you to achieve your ambitions.

The Story of Insight Medical Careers

I’ve met doctors at all levels who were dissatisfied with their careers because of ill-informed choices. 30 years after my own graduation, I’ve been astounded to think that there is still a complete lack of personalised, impartial career advice available for students and doctors. I saw a real need for a career mentor with a specialised medical background. So, in 2016, I founded Insight Medical Careers, a complete career guidance service offering advice across the whole spectrum: applying to study medicine, choosing a specialty, getting onto training programs, changing direction or returning to work after a break.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with students and doctors across Australia at every level and in all specialties. Not only do I have the experience and expertise to successfully guide you every step of the way, I also have a unique awareness of the challenges doctors can face throughout their careers. 

Always optimistic and enthusiastic, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve great things. I’m committed to helping you succeed, to make the right career choice, one that suits you and your lifestyle and allows you to have a long, happy and truly satisfying career.

My Background

Having graduated from the University of Newcastle, I’m a specialist medical administrator. My formal qualifications are BMed, DipRANZCOG, MHA (UNSW) and FRACMA.

After working in hospital administration, junior doctor education, medical regulation and medico-legal roles, I’ve met many doctors who were dissatisfied with their careers and  have seen how my unique background and combination of skills have been able to help them.

I provide personal, individual career mentoring, tailored exactly to your needs. I’m completely independent with no affiliation to any university, hospital or training program, ensuring the advice I give is impartial and always 100% confidential.

I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve great things, and I’m committed to helping you succeed in your medical career

Introducing Dr Jo Hely

As a doctor myself, I understand the career challenges doctors face. After working in hospital administration, junior doctor education, medical regulation and medico-legal roles, I’ve met doctors (at all levels) who were dissatisfied with their careers because of ill-informed choices and saw a real need for a career advisor with a specialised medical background.

Having interviewed hundreds of doctors at every level and in most specialties, I know the types of questions you’re likely to be asked and what the interviewers are looking for. I’ve developed a unique approach aimed at giving you more confidence in your career planning.

Ever the optimist and always enthusiastic, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve great things. I’m committed to helping you succeed in the competitive selection process.
