Rural Clinical School - Student For A Day Event
On July 18 we welcomed final year Biomedical Sciences (Medical) students to see what they can expect when commencing as first year medical students through the Doctor of Medicine medical course at the University of Melbourne in 2023.
As part of the Rural Pathway, these students form one half of next year's cohort in partnership with La Trobe University. The program is a part in a series of programs funded by the Federal Government under the banner of the Murray-Darling Medical Schools Network (MDMSN) and has been created to address chronic shortages of doctors in regional and rural areas by training students from the regions, in the regions.
The Rural Clinical School 'student for a day' event was a coming together of new and current students on ground at our Shepparton campus.
Thank you to current first year Medical Doctor students (MD1's) - Abby, Srishti, Gabriella, Yong and Oscar for sharing your valuable experiences, advice and guidance with the group.
