"Medicine is unlike other courses in that the application process is so different compared to everything else. As a year 12 who's trying to study for the HSC and maintain some semblance of a life - the extra UCAT study, exam, applications and interviews can seem daunting and quite often confusing. I know I experienced this during my HSC year and I've since seen many medicine hopefuls go through the same struggle. I know that if it wasn't for older med students who helped me along the way, I would not have been anywhere near as equipped to face the challenges that year would bring. That's also why I've always been keen to guide younger students through the process, give them the complete insider breakdown, and coach them with interviews when it comes down to the crunch."

"Getting into Medicine was a complicated process..... to say the least. I started by talking to friends and family who were studying Medicine. They were the best sources of knowledge, having went through the entire process recently. I found out from them the biggest barrier that prevented people from getting into Medicine, the UCAT/GAMSAT. I focused most of my spare time on doing well in the GAMSAT, which I sat twice. After scoring a high mark I was faced with more admissions headache as each Medical School has its own admission requirements and admission timelines. I would love to give a little back and assist future Medical Students through the Admission Process by giving them a structure and plan to sit the GAMSAT, apply to Medicine and practise as a future physician."
