Study Medicine - Some background
No wonder it's hard to get into medicine...
There's thousands of dedicated, would-be medical students, all trying to apply for the limited number of Australian university places,
and you have to be really clever to meet the understandably high scores to get in.
No issues here. These are all givens.
what's also a challenge, is getting information about all the Australian university medical degrees,
and working out how they compare,
so you can think through your options and maximise your chances of getting into medicine.
A PERSONAL NOTE
Study Medicine gives you the overview (map, if you will) to choose the right path for you to become a doctor.
I started to put this information together so my daughter and I could understand what's involved in applying for a medical degree in Australia.
I decided it would be a good thing to also provide this information to you.
I figure it's hard enough to get into medicine,
without the added complication of having to understand each university's particular entrance requirements,
and find the time to immerse yourself enough to understand all the degree information to the point where you can compare
when at the same time you're trying to study.
I don't have any affiliations with organisations that offer support/products, such as UMAT preparation material.
This is all my own work and I offer it as I know it will be helpful,
not only for high school and university students looking to get into undergraduate or postgraduate degrees,
but other supporters,
such as school career counsellors - who are additionally challenged to stay on top of ever changing entrance requirements and keep up with all the medical degrees on offer
and also wonderful (!) parents.
