The Charles Sturt University and Western Sydney University Joint Program in Medicine will present an online information night on Tuesday 4 May for prospective students and their parents, as well as careers advisors.

The Joint Program in Medicine delivers the Doctor of Medicine, a five-year undergraduate entry degree that prepares graduates for a career in medicine.

The Joint Program in Medicine is run in partnership with Western Sydney University, and the Doctor of Medicine is taught at the Charles Sturt School of Rural Medicine located in Orange.

Dean of Rural Medicine in the Charles Sturt School of Rural Medicine, Professor Lesley Forster, said, “With the first cohort of student doctors recently welcomed to begin their five-year journey training for careers in rural and regional medicine, the Joint Program in Medicine also looks to the prospective 2022 cohort and beyond.

“The series of Medicine Information Nights is for prospective students and their parents, and careers advisors.

“The online session on Tuesday 4 May is a great opportunity for anyone interested in applying to study the Doctor of Medicine in 2022 and thereafter.

“The information night will include key course information, entry requirements, application process, scholarships and more, including the opportunity to meet our School of Rural Medicine team and some of our new students.”

The 2021 medicine students were selected from more than 800 applications for the program, with most of the students admitted into the program from rural and regional areas in Australia.

There are currently 43 students enrolled in the program in Orange, which includes 20 students from the Central West, eight from northern NSW, four from the Southern Highlands, two from Albury, and one from regional Victoria.

Dean of the School of Medicine at Western Sydney University and Executive Dean of the Joint Program, Distinguished Professor Annemarie Hennessy, AM, said the Doctor of Medicine program is an exciting prospect for aspiring doctors.

“Western Sydney University and Charles Sturt University are both committed to delivering health professional programs that respond to important health challenges and workforce needs of their regions,” Professor Hennessy said.

“Students in this Joint Program in Medicine will benefit from a proven medical course with almost 10 years of graduates and experienced, passionate local academic staff and medical staff who will guide their learning and shape their future careers in medicine.”

Please book your place to join the upcoming Doctor of Medicine online information night on Tuesday 4 May.
