Portrait of Ash Witt

Ash Witt

Ashleigh Witt works as a doctor in Melbourne's public hospital system. She is passionate about end of life care, including conversations about dying and ageing. She plans to specialise in geriatric medicine and palliative care.

Witt believes doctors have a duty to contribute to public dialogue. She curates the rotation curation Twitter account @westudentdocs, which hosts a new medical student tweeter each week.

She loves wine, baking, her cat Cupcake and could also very happily spend the rest of her life reading novels.
