Transitioning into MD2 Bendigo

Summer holidays are over and I’ve had the pleasure of catching up with friends – celebrated PanPan’s birthday, made watermelon cake, made ‘eating lots of food’ an understatement, and had a classic BBQ. For future summers to come, I endeavour to continue my learning on overseas placements. I’ve now moved into Bendigo with my housemates and it’s already been a week of orientation.

Rest of my holidays:

Ah at last – 3-years of hard work, 2 sittings of GAMSAT and months of interview preparation have finally paid off! It’s with great excitement that I can share with you all this long-awaited milestone!

Well done to those of you who have also received offers – I am truly happy for you and I look forward to meeting you in the medical field. For those who are less fortunate, don’t give up; I’ll see you on the other side of the river soon enough.

To my friends: thank you for crossing paths with me. You’ve made this journey so much more enjoyable than it should be. No matter where we end up, I hope we will all some day meet again. Although for some of you, we may not have gotten off on the right foot – I endeavour to make ends meet with this fresh start; tabula rasa.

And to my family: thank you for the unconditional love; I could not have asked for a better family. Thank you for raising me up and supporting me all the way through.

Looking ahead into the next chapter of my life, I think the BMP scheme and the rural clinical school will benefit my dream to volunteer overseas as a doctor. From what I’ve heard, I should be able to do my 2nd clinical year in the clinical school zone of my choice. Either way, I’m looking forward to this unique experience.
