Get into Med: first steps to becoming a doctor will deep-dive into the world of medical school admissions. Presented by current medical students, the 2 hour program entails:

  • Do you really want to be a doctor? We’ll do a full-body CT scan of the rationale, motivations and reasoning of why people decide to study and practice medicine, and look beyond the media and societal representations.
  • We’ll dissect the requirements of medical schools, and give you a sneak peek at the curriculum so you know what you’ll be studying.
  • Understanding the 3 major admissions parameters used in medical schools across Australia and New Zealand is critical for entry. We’ll prescribe the strategies for optimising:

1) Entrance exams: UCAT or GAMSAT

2) Academic performance thresholds: High school or Uni

3) Medical interviews

  • How do you get there? We’ll stitch together tips and tricks to avoid the medical school offer slump, including ways to make you stand out from the crowd.
