    Ruby Loschiavo, Doctor of Medicine, 1st Year (2017)

    What do you like most about the Doctor of Medicine?

    The main aspects of the course that I have enjoyed so far are the interactive and clinical based approaches used to help us learn the basic foundations of medicine. I have also thoroughly enjoyed making friends with like-minded peers and engaging with others to help develop my understanding as well as sharing my passion for clinical science with others.

    What would you like to do after graduating?

    I would like to work as a health care professional in areas of the healthcare system that I believe require more attention and better facilities, I would like to work in public health to contribute to what I believe is a worthy cause and imperative to the continuing health care in Australia.

    Joshua Murray, Doctor of Medicine, 1st Year (2017)

    “I applied under Access Melbourne as a rural student. Being able to study at the University of Melbourne was never something I thought was possible growing up as a kid from the country. The program has given me the opportunity to learn at one of the world’s best universities.”

    Haiying Chen, Doctor of Medicine, 4th Year (2017)

    "It is fascinating to see the science of medicine collide with the art of medicine, at bedsides, clinics, skill labs, and operating theatres."

    Emma is inspired by patients. "Their generosity and resilience motivate me to keep questioning, keep improving and keep working hard. Clinicians who have taught me and mentored me are my role models for their utmost dedication to patient care and continuing pursuit of excellence."

    What have you enjoyed most about the Doctor of Medicine?

    I am very fortunate to have worked with the many talented and inspiring researchers at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, The Royal Melbourne Hospital, Vanderbilt University in the United States, and Centre for Eye Research Australia. I have gained confidence in interacting with people from various backgrounds. Keep an open mind, embrace uncertainties and seize every opportunity.
