Information for prospective Sydney Medical Program students
The Discipline is recognised for its international leadership in the areas of pregnancy care, fetal assessment, gynaecological disorders and neonatal care. Students are given the opportunity to study in this dynamic environment.
Clinical placements at ante-natal clinics and wards, labour wards, operating theatres, neonatal nurseries, NICU and in doctors’ rooms form a major part of the rotation. Students are assigned to one of six Clinical Schools - Central, Nepean, Northern, Rural Health (located at Dubbo and Orange), Sydney Adventist Hospital and Westmead.
Teaching occurs across the four years of the Sydney Medical Program, including Problem Based Learning cases, and Clinical Skills Teaching in Years 1 & 2. The major component of the course is an 8 week rotation in Perinatal Women's Health in Stage 3.
An eight week pre-internship is available in general medical, general surgical teams and sub specialties.
