Future Doctors Australia

Gaining medical work experience is essential for young people considering a career in medicine.

4-Day program for ages 14 to 18

Gaining medical work experience is essential for young people considering a career in medicine. It provides insight into the field, helps develop skills and attributes, and provides networking opportunities. However, obtaining medical work experience can be challenging due to various restrictions such as limited opportunities, safety concerns, and confidentiality issues.

That's why NIE has developed the "Future Doctors Australia" program. It is an engaging and high-impact 4-day program that provides young people with a unique opportunity to gain medical work experience in a safe and structured environment. Participants will have the opportunity to spend time with current junior and senior medical students. They will also have the rare opportunity to spend time with more senior clinicians and various medical specialists. You will get to learn about clinical's specialist's relevant fields of work, ask them questions, and learn some hands-on skills from them. 

The program includes:

Day 1 Building Foundations and Connections

Meet with current medical students and JMOs. Hear about their journeys and experiences to learn from those who are currently studying or practicing medicine and gain insights into the path ahead. You will also take part in various social activities focused on team building, presentation skills, and making new friends. 

Day 2 Exploring Specialisations

Spend the day with two different medical specialists. Find out and learn about their specialties through practical learning activities. For example, one of the specialists could be a pediatrician and you would learn about the different stages of child development and common pediatric illnesses.

Day 3 Broadening Horizons

Meet two more medical specialists from various fields. This provides students with a broad overview of the different areas of medicine and helps them make informed decisions about their future career paths. NIE's vast network of medical specialists includes Cardiologists, Gastroenterologists, Nephrologists, Otolaryngologists, Pediatricians, Neurologists, Obstetricians, and many more. 

Day 4 Mastering and Celebrating Achievements

A look into the admission process - Advanced communication skills and Graduation. This day provides students with valuable information about the medical school admission process and teaches them some important soft-skills to help them succeed in their future studies. The day will be concluded with a graduation ceremony, where you will be awarded a program completion certificate.
