Michelle Johnston

A woman smiling

Michelle Johnston is a consultant emergency physician who works at an inner-city hospital. Mostly her days consist of trauma and mess. She studied medicine at UWA, and gained her Fellowship with the Australian College for Emergency Medicine in 1998. She believes there is a beating heart of humanity, art and beauty within the sometimes brutal reality of the Emergency Department, and she has dedicated her career to finding that sweet spot between creativity and critical care medicine. Books are her other oxygen, and writing her sustenance. Dustfall is her first novel, released in February 2018 through UWA Publishing.
