On behalf of the Wollongong University Medical Student Society (WUMSS) I welcome you to Wollongong University Graduate Medicine! Big congratulations for being accepted into such a competitive school! The school has a mantra of graduating academically and clinically exceptional interns that are excellent researchers – how can we go wrong?!
Our intimate cohort size allows for a collaborative environment that paired with the beautiful natural backdrop of the area creates only one result – great doctors! The four years of medical school will allow for all the well-known clichés about personal and professional growth to (predictably) occur in bulk but here at Graduate Medicine we aim for much more. We want all students to remain as well rounded coming out of the degree as they are going in. This is where WUMSS is at its strength.
Medical school is hard and having outlets in the arts, networking events as well as access to mentors within university and the medical community is very important. Support in pursuing passions outside of university is also key for mental and physical wellbeing and WUMSS tries our utmost to support this in any way we can. Be prepared to work hard and continue to support each other as medicine is always a team effort after all.
My advice would be to get involved in any and every way you can as you’ll be surprised how much “luck” comes from perseverance. I am looking forward to getting to know you over the next few years and if you are not already, get excited. Most importantly #getaroundthegong Good luck with the years ahead! Enjoy the new experiences and the WUMSS team will be here to help guide and support you every step of the way.
