Dr Flynn believes that there is a requirement for female orthopaedic independent medical examiners, a specialty which is currently limited significantly due to the nature of the orthopaedic workforce. Dr Flynn has undertaken a Masters degree in Clinical Epidemiology and a post graduate qualification in Medical Law at the University of Melbourne. She endeavours to understand the impact of injury on the individual and understands the importance of treating examinees with respect and compassion whilst maintaining impartiality.
