Free information night on studying medicine in rural NSW

Charles Sturt University will host a free information night on Tuesday 29 March for prospective students, their parents and career advisors of the Doctor of Medicine program.

Representatives from Charles Sturt University will host a free information session on the Doctor of Medicine program on Tuesday night 29 March from 6pm to 7.30pm.

The Doctor of Medicine program is a five-year undergraduate degree offered at the School of Rural Medicine at Charles Sturt in Orange through the Charles Sturt and Western Sydney University Joint Program in Medicine.

The session will include an overview of the course curriculum, course entry requirements and how to apply to the Doctor of Medicine program.

Dean of Rural Medicine in the School of Rural Medicine Professor Lesley Forster said the information night is a great forum for those considering a career in medicine.

“The information night is a great opportunity for prospective medical students to find out key information about the Doctor of Medicine program, and what is needed to apply and complete the course,” Professor Forster said.

“Attendees will get to know how hands-on and practical the Doctor of Medicine program is and how students gain invaluable experience from the first day they commence their course.

“Students of the School of Rural Medicine are privy to the latest medical equipment, state-of-the-art facilities, and a curriculum that is tailored to the needs of rural, regional and remote communities.”

Attendees will meet staff from the School of Rural Medicine while hearing from rural and regional doctors and current students of the Doctor of Medicine program about their experiences and journey to date.

Information will also cover clinical placements, campus life in Orange, support services and scholarships.

The session is relevant to prospective students, their parents and career advisors.

This is a free event and participants can register their attendance here.
