    Hey!
    Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on which clinical school to select for 1st year? They give the option of Princess Alexandra Clinical school or Royal Brisbane Clinical school...

    Thanks!

    I've been doing some reading, and supposedly you don't really spend much time in your clinical school during your first year anyway. People on the UQ Med Society forum (uqms.org) have been saying that during your first year, you should choose based on proximity... then, if you change your mind for some reason, you can always move later.
    Princess Alexandra Hospital is closer to UQ's main campus (where most of your classes will be), but it's also across the river so you'll have to either walk or wait for a ferry and then take a bus. Royal Brisbane Hospital is too far to walk, so you'll have to take a bus.
