Hello, I had always pictured myself going down the path of applying for a graduate entry medical course at a popular university and doing it tough for four years, then serve one year as an intern, then hopefully specialise in cardiovascular/thoracic/neuro surgery or similar.... But a friend of mine has opened my eyes to the Australian Defence Force and it's Duntrune university in Canberra. The only problem is that you have to work for four years as a military medic when your four year degree is complete. But they pay you to attend and keep you active and fit (I need a bit of motivation from time to time) and I thought it was worth a look as another avenue. Does anyone know how highly regarded a Defence Force medical degree is? Would I still be able to apply for specialist surgical training at a Royal College just as I planned to do after a conventional degree?? Any responses would be much appreciated! Thanks and regards, Mark.
