MEDICAL TRAINING, The Education Age (21 November 2005 Page 10)

Throughout the ages and in most countries medicine has been a profession with special privileges, hence demand to study medicine is high. In fact the demand to supply ratio is higher for medicine than for any other course in Australia, which is one reason for the use of criteria other than ATAR scores for entry (The medical Maze, Education Age, 7/11/2005). Since medical knowledge is growing ...

CHANGING TIMES, Australian Doctor (16 June 2006, Page 2)

Perhaps Dr Andrew Griffiths is not aware of the numerous changes in medical student selection that have taken place during the last ten years (Selection fails, 19 May). His criticisms about the inadequacies in the medical student selection are therefore not valid today. These days, one does not need to get very high ATAR score to get into medical school, since almost all medical schools hav ...

TO COACH OR NOT......, Australian Doctor (15 April 2005, Page 31)

Dr Kerri Parnell asks whether coaching for tests such as UMAT (now UCAT) helps ('Medical School Pick of the Crop may be Missing the Point', Gut Feelings, 25 March). If UCAT coaching is not useful, the logical conclusion is that coaching for selective/private school entry/scholarships tests is also not useful. Yet parents spend enormous amounts having their children coached for such ...

IRRELEVANT TEST, Australian Doctor (9 March 2007)

EDITOR: It is not surprising that the Graduate Australian Medical School Admission Test (GAMSAT) is not a good predictor of students' performance in medical school ('Graduate med school test doubts', 9 February). However, a more important question that should be investigated is whether GAMSAT is a good test for predicting whether selected students become good medical practitione ...

NOT ALL ENTRY TESTS EQUAL, Medical Observer (16 February 2007, Page 17)

The debate about whether school leaver entry or graduate entry is better for medicine will continue for a long time because there are winners and losers in either scenario (Inside Story, 24/11/2006; Letters, 8/12). The graduate entry pathway has the following disadvantages: 1. Many highly able students who would otherwise have become excellent doctors will be lost to other professions, beca ...
