Studying at Nepean
Sydney Medical School Nepean provides excellent conditions for learning. The administrative staff and the clinical tutors provide a friendly atmosphere and are flexible and supportive in their approach to your studies.
You can be assured of seeing many interesting cases, owing at least in part to efforts made by staff finding patients well-suited to the problem of the week. A high patient-to-student ratio makes it easier to find a patient when you want to practice clinical skills outside of class.
The hospital itself is quite new, and a comfortable place to work. The library is well equipped and makes the most of a stunning view of the mountains which you can gaze at while you get your head around the finer points of a case.
Nepean's supportive working environment makes for high student morale which is highly contagious.
Sydney Medical School Nepean welcomed forty three new Stage 1 students on Wednesday 6th February. They will be the first in our illustrious list of Nepean medical students to learn entirely from the base of the new building at 62 Derby Street. We were able to make good use of the facilities for orientation events, both lectures and teaching sessions, and my thanks go to our generous staff and senior students who facilitated the events. It turned out to be a long day for the students, and as well as welcoming them I would also like to thank them for their punctuality, good humoured participation and their patience with a delay or two. I look forward to getting to know each of our Stage 1 2013 students as the year progresses. Tutorials commence either Monday 18th or Wednesday 20th of February, depending on the students’ allocated attendance day, so if you see the new students within the grounds please make them welcome.
