HUNDREDS of hours of study have proved worthwhile for former Maryborough State High School student Alana Bond, who has topped her emergency training exams.

The Gold Coast-based doctor said anyone who wanted to specialise in emergency medicine must do the exams to qualify.

"All of us studied so hard, I think because we didn't want to sit them again," she said.

The examinations involved a written test, practical test and panel question session.

Dr Bond's results were above and beyond what she was expecting.

"It was a huge shock, these exams were the most important of my career," she said.

"It's a lot of hard work and a lot of studying ... I love it, I think that's the reason I've done well."

Dr Bond said she could not have won the prize without the support of her department at the Gold Coast University hospital.

She will travel to Adelaide on November 24 to receive an Australasian College of Emergency Medicine prize and hopes to work in rural medicine in Alice Springs.
