Electives Information Session
Struggling to decide between Pharmacology and Developmental Biology? Wondering exactly what research units are available to you? Come along to our electives information session and get the answers to all your questions, directly from each unit coordinator! A great summary of what is possible to study in addition to your Biomed core units. Heavily attended and certainly not to be missed!
Women in the Medical Field: A brand new event in 2021! We saw that there was a missing link in academic events catered towards all the wonderful women paving their way in the medical industry. With a panel of amazing and inspiring women, this is the perfect opportunity to network and learn about your future options after Biomed. All genders are welcome to attend and learn from and about women in the medical world.
GEMSAS Information Session
If a career in Medicine is your ultimate aim, don’t miss our GEMSAS Information Session (Graduate Entry Medical School Admissions System... you’ll deal with these guys a bit if you’re applying for a medical course after Biomed), information from this session is important and tailored to those coming from a Monash Biomedical Science degree. This session covers entry requirements for postgraduate Medicine courses, as well as how to fill out all the forms! There’s also Q&A time with some current Med students with Monash Biomed backgrounds.
Medical Interview Session
One of the key components of entry to Medical School is the interview! Here at the Biomed Society we collaborate with Fraser’s GAMSAT and bring along an expert to tell you about the process and give you some great hints and tips for doing well!
GAMSAT Information Session
Due to the interest of most Biomed students in postgraduate Medicine, we run an individual information session about the Graduate Australian Medical School Admission Test (GAMSAT). This day-long exam is a necessary trial to endure for entry into postgraduate Medicine. In 2022, we are again partnering with Fraser’s GAMSAT Tuition to provide a comprehensive information session, which deconstructs the three sections of the GAMSAT and provides preparatory advice for each. Highly recommended to complement your GAMSAT preparation.
Masters and Honours Information Session
Are you unsure of what further study options are available to Biomed graduates? If so, our Masters & Honours Information Session is for you. The session is run in a lecture format with the coordinators from multiple masters and honours courses from departments such as Physiology, Radiation Therapy, Embryology and more. This event is a great opportunity and platform for you to explore the range of options and alternate career pathways beyond your Biomedical Science degree!
Dress up nicely at one of Melbourne’s best venues, have a drink or two and learn all about some of your options post-Biomed! The fact of the matter is, there is such a wide range of careers that await you with a Biomedical Science degree under your belt, and what better way to learn about them than to talk to real people with experience in them? We invite professionals in health science, pharmaceuticals, education, research and the medical field... just to name a few. This is an event not to be missed and it will be bigger and better than ever. Let’s make academics FUN together!
