Prospective doctors can learn about the finer details of their future study pathway at a free, online information session hosted by Charles Sturt University.

The information session which outlines the Doctor of Medicine program will be held virtually on Wednesday 20 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 would help showcase why a career in medicine may be right for you.

“Prospective medical students will learn all the key information they need before embarking on their Doctor of Medicine program, including details on what is needed to apply and complete the course,” Professor Forster said.

“The Doctor of Medicine program is incredibly hands-on and practical, and this information session will elaborate on how students can gain invaluable experience from the outset of their course.

“Our School of Rural Medicine offers students access 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.
