Primed for emergency response
Melbourne-born Thomas, 26, cannot wait to finish his Doctor of Medicine at Notre Dame and begin work – ideally in the Accident and Emergency ward of a major hospital.
“I love working with people and my hands,” he says. “Thanks to the award-winning anatomy teaching program at Notre Dame I’m really motivated to pursue a career in Emergency Medicine and/or Surgery.”
Thomas, who completed a BSc Hons before commencing his medical training in Sydney, says that he really appreciates the high-quality teaching at Notre Dame along with the support that he receives from the academic staff.
Medicine at Notre Dame was a perfect fit for me: the small and intimate cohort, the unparalleled pastoral care from the Notre Dame community and the close tuition and support from the doctors and professors made it an easy choice.
I have enjoyed tackling the challenges of medicine, the case studies, the rotations and workshops - it has fostered my problem-solving and communication skills. I also love the opportunities that this course has created. The door is open for me to go anywhere.
