I am thrilled with my decision to study at Flinders. Flinders offers so many great opportunities to learn from experts in the field and to obtain first-hand experience in hospitals. The small class sizes allow for an engaging learning experience and there are plenty of experiences to get involved.
My four years studying medicine trained me really well for working as a doctor, in terms of clinical technique and knowledge, and also in skilful interpersonal communication with patients and colleagues. My training at Flinders prepared me well for my work as a junior doctor and for specialist and sub-specialist training in paediatric ophthalmology.
My medical education at Flinders was innovative, almost revolutionary, personalised, rigorous, research orientated, and has given me a welcome legacy of life long enquiry.
Being able to watch open heart surgery just down the hallway from where we attend lectures in Flinders Medical Centre has been the most amazing thing so far. Observing the whole process from beginning to end was fascinating.
The Flinders MD has given me the ability to gain clinical knowledge and to see real patients from a very early stage of medical school, which helps apply what we are taught in class.
