For those of you who don't know, Im an undergrad of Health Science (public health & human biology) in Australia thinking of applying to Grad Medicine when I finish (2004). The state I live (WA) doesn't yet have any grad programs, only 6yr undergrad. I really want to stay in WA, so I am hopeing that by 2004-2005 we will have a grad school up and running (talk is in progress), either that or I could apply for the 6yr undergrad program, however that means repeating a lot of courses I have already done. This is to leorl, have you heard from Uni of Melb yet? My boyfriend is from Melb (now living in Perth with me) I am now considering if I may apply to Uni of Melb as well. I looked at the website...it does look like a very good program. Im quite confused though, my mother and many of her friends are doctors, and they don't think I should do Med. However I really want to do the course, its like I want to prove to people that I can do it.....I get worried that maybe this is the wrong reason to want to do something so huge. Does anyone else feel this way? But then I remember that med has always been in my blood. I love going to the hospital with mum, and I'll never forget the day I saw her deliever a baby...I was right there next the the mother and everything, the midwife was telling me everything as she did things...it was great and I know med students who haven't even see that. Sorry I really an rambbling, and if some of this doesn't make sense, it is because it is quite late over here.
