Dr Felicity Adams completed her education in Brisbane, graduating with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from The University of Queensland in 2005. After graduating she undertook surgical specialty training based at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, and also working at various locations around South East Queensland, including two years on the Sunshine Coast. During this time Felicity developed her knowledge of a broad range of general surgery interventions and developed skills in laparoscopic surgery.
