    As a student aiming to become a patient-centred doctor, I was drawn to ĢƵ because of their emphasis on rural and tropical health. I come from a rural town myself, so, being able to give back to smaller communities one day is something I am looking forward to.

    I was always interested in rural medicine and I have been keen on studying tropical medicine and ĢƵ offered both. The programme was a perfect fit for me. When I looked at ĢƵ Medicine’s placement program I was impressed as it gives us ample opportunities to gain hands-on experience and prepares us well for the future.

    I think if you want to study medicine in Australia you have to look at all your options and ĢƵ is really highly regarded. Speaking to my colleagues, not just in the regional setting but down south in Sydney, everyone regards medical students that have graduated from ĢƵ as being very well prepared for work life.

    Our ĢƵ course actually has one of the highest number of placement hours of any course in Australia. We pride ourselves on being able to produce graduates who are extremely work ready and hit the ground running.

    Medical Superintendent for Babinda Multi-Purpose Health Service

    ĢƵ students are ready to step through the doors of a rural facility like Babinda, which is a multipurpose health service, and become one of the team. The confidence they have and the ability to apply their skills and knowledge is very evident.
