Written specifically for young people who are considering embarking on a medical degree — whether straight out of school or as a postgraduate qualification, as well as those already enrolled, this essential guide covers:- what to expect as a qualified doctor in Australia today;- life as a student, from the application, selection and interview process, to the pressures of study, and advice on managing stress;- an overview of the 18 medical schools in Australia, the similarities and differences and particular focus or strengths at each;- the Australian health care system and career paths for medical graduates.The book describes the attributes that the Australian community desires in its doctors, the prerequisites for entry into medical school, the nature of the various medical courses, and the expectations placed upon medical students.
