The Mater Hospital’s newest orthopaedic surgeon Dr Levi Morse’s education has come full circle. He left Townsville as the dux of Kirwan State High School and has recently returned to the city with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (Honours), from Flinders University in Adelaide and a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) from the University of Queensland.
After graduating as valedictorian from a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, Dr Levi Morse then went on to become the top academic graduate from his medical degree. He undertook his Orthopaedic training in Adelaide and recently completed his fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery. “It’s great to be back in Townsville” Dr Morse said. He said his wife’s family were originally from the Burdekin and Townsville and it was a wonderful place to bring up his four children. Professionally, Dr Morse said he had always had a special interest in regional and rural health, and enjoyed the variety in surgical workload that can be offered in Townsville.
