What’s the first year of the Griffith MD really like?

You did it! You took all the right courses, studied hard and got good grades, and got the acceptance of your dreams to an Australian med school. But now what?

In her first year of the Doctor of Medicine program at Griffith University, Deepti was busy with not only trying adapt to a new country but also managing a busy class schedule and demanding curriculum.

“They really had an intense schedule in the second half of the year in us getting our anatomy, and communication skills, and PBL problem-based learning was a huge new thing…”

But, now in her second year, she feels that the demand for hard work and dedication has paid off.

“… compare that to second year… it was a lot of learning curves of you having to know what resources you had to source out…  it’s such a good skill because you’re critically analyzing multiple different resources by the end of your scouting for information.”
