A proud Kamilaroi woman, Dr Cory, is particularly passionate about achieving equitable health outcomes for First Nations Australians; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
As the recipient of a 2020 Fulbright Future Scholarship and Roberta Sykes Scholarship, Dr Cory will undertake a Master of Public Health at Harvard with the aim of exploring the intersection between surgery and public health; colloquially known as global surgery, to achieve greater health equity for underserved and minority populations.

In 2019 Jordan presented the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons congress on improving the accessibility of surgical clinical pathways for Aboriginal patients. She is currently working with the Victorian Audit of Surgical Mortality to define and improve inequities in surgical care of Indigenous patients.
Dr Cory is an Otolaryngoloy pre-SET trainee at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital. She has also worked at the Royal Melbourne Hospital as a Neurosurgery pre-SET trainee and Surgical Resident.

I was always drawn to medicine as a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community and as a powerful way to challenge the status quo of the inequities we still see in modern Australia and around the world.
