So far Paraskevi has undertaken placements at Casey Hospitals


postnatal and antenatal unit, Dandenong antenatal and Rosebud
hospitals rehab unit.

When Koby completed Year 12 in 2011, his ATAR was marginally


lower than the requirement for entry into nursing. So he
undertook the one-year alternative entry pathway theDiploma
of Tertiary Studies (DoTS).

The clinical components of the course


are fantastic; they provide a great
opportunity to consolidate the theory,
and for a periodof time you get to livethe
life you canexpect to have when you

After just one year I have spent almost a
month on placement and feel completely
prepared to handle the challenges ahead!

I was able to immediately start my nursing studies with all


the other first-year nursing students, but these studies were
combined with units that focused on the academic requirements
of university. This helped me become familiar with what was
expected of me academically.
On completion of his one-year DoTS course, Koby was
accepted into the second year of the Bachelor of Nursing
(CommunityHealth).

The life of
a nurse
Michael Fox (Graduate), Bachelor of Nursing and
Bachelor of Emergency Health (Paramedic)
While I was well prepared for the actual patient care, there is a lot more
behind the scenes work to do as a nurse, such as clerical work, and
dealing with families and other health professionals.
Being able to take charge of someones care, particularly in an emergency,
is extremely rewarding.
Obviously, healthcare can be quite challenging at times. Quite literally,
youhave peoples lives in your hands.
Michael Fox is just about to start his dream job as an emergency
department nurse.
Michael blogs about his experiences as a graduate nurse, providing insights
from working a double shift to caring for people in their final stages of life:

Paraskevi Loupis, Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Midwifery
Michael Fox has just completed his graduate year at
Frankston hospital.

Paraskevi is very interested in midwifery care in developing countries


andhopes to spend time in countries of need after graduation.
After this I hope to work part-time in a midwifery ward and the rest
ofthetime as a palliative care nurse, completing the circle of life.

Laura Butler, Bachelor of Nursing


One advantage of nursing is that there are a lot of opportunities to work
overseas so work in another country is definitely on my agenda!
Apart from that, my main goal is to specialise in an area Im really
passionate about and hopefully come back to Monash to complete

Sophie Robinson, Bachelor of

While Daniella is still undecided about


her future career possibly postgraduate
medicine or further studies in public
health eventually she wants to work in
developing regions, amongst vulnerable
groups marginalised by society.

I have just started a Doctor of Clinical


Psychology and I am really enjoyingit.
The DPsych program at Monash
University appealed to me as it offers a
wide variation in research opportunities
and provides specialisation in one of
three psychology fields: adult clinical
psychology, forensic psychology, and
child, adolescent and family psychology.
Ihave chosen the child, adolescent and
family psychology specialisation and
hope to work in this area once qualified.

Id love to address maternal and child


health needs in areas such as the
Northern Territory and sub-Saharan
Africa as my Honours project will look at
identifying the gaps of primary healthcare
service utilisation for young women in the
Top End of the Northern Territory.

The theory and teaching provided in the MBBS program fits in
very nicely with the ward experience and the simulation program
that is run. Having studied the basic sciences such as anatomy
and physiology, in year 1 and 2, the following years focus on
building that foundation into clinical knowledge. The simulation
program in Bendigo is run by very highly qualified tutors, who go
out of their way to help the students. It allows the students to put
the theory into practice in real-life situations. Thishas been one of
the best aspects of the ERC program.

Extended Rural Cohort (ERC)


Each year approximately 30 CSP places are available under the
Extended Rural Cohort scheme. Some of these places may be
Bonded Medical Places (BMP). See below for more details. The
ERC stream within the MBBS enables students to undertake
extended clinical training across rural and regional Northern
Victoria.
Detailed information about the ERC can be found at: www.med.
monash.edu/medical/northernvic

Bonded Medical Places (BMP)


The federal government has advised all Australian medical schools
that about 25 per cent of their CSP places must be allocated
as BMP. At Monash we offer about 60 Bonded Medical Places.
By indicating a preference for a BMP, upon accepting an offer,
the student will be required to sign a contract provided by the
Commonwealth Government. Monash advises potential students to
seek early legal advice. Students accepting a BMP will be required
to practise in a designated area of medical need at the completion
of their training, including specialist training.

Internships for International students

You must be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident at the


time of application to be eligible to apply for a BMP.

Any offer of a place in Monash medical courses is made on the


understanding that Monash University in no way guarantees any
period of internships in Australia. As a result our international students
complete their internships in their home country. Internships are not
allocated by Monash University.

What to expect in
your course
Inspiring
teachers
Elisa Rossimel, Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics
Elisa was inspired by her lecturer Dr Claire Palermo to pursue a
career in indigenous health.
It was while listening to Claires lectures on indigenous health
that I became passionate about working in this area, and after
graduating in 2011 I was fortunate to gain a position at Maari Ma.
Maari Ma is a community-controlled Aboriginal health corporation,
which services the far west of NSW and happens to be based in
one of Australias most overweight towns Broken Hill.
Elisa feels that the best thing about working as a dietitian rurally,
and in Aboriginal health particularly, is the amazing diversity which
allows her work to spread into all areas of health.
As well as seeing a huge range of conditions in patients of all
ages, I have been able to develop and run health promotion
courses and cooking classes in preschools, schools, and
communities, train Aboriginal Health Workers and teachers to
better specialise in nutrition and develop a nutritional intervention
program for at-risk families at an Intensive Supported Playgroup.
This diversity has taught me a great deal about issues that
branch off dietetics, including Aboriginal culture, engaging diverse
and troubled communities, mental health, dental issues, early
childhood development, and the realities of living rurally.
Whilst at times a very challenging area, it provides a wealth of
independence and creativity, allowing you to get involved ata
grass-roots level and see the real impacts youhavechanging
peopleslives.
Elisa blogs about the way foods are used and loved across
different cultures (www.dietitianonamission.me)

Dr Claire Palermo, Senior lecturer and


4th-yearconvener, Nutrition and Dietetics
Dr Claire Palermos background as a public health nutritionist
allows her not only to provide a solid basis for teaching but also
asolid foundation for providing insights about working in the
fieldof Nutrition and Dietetics.
Being able to share my passion in the field of nutrition and
dietetics through teaching is a wonderful opportunity. To see
our students learn and develop their skills over the course of
thedegree is extremely rewarding.
The course really allows our students to develop their
understanding and skills in key areas that dietitians are
increasingly sought for in fields like indigenous health, chronic
disease, aged care and the food industry.
Im particularly excited when I see where our graduates end up
atthe forefront of healthcare and making meaningful impacts in a
variety of communities and society in general.

Benn Stockdale, Bachelor of Radiography and

I also found the biology lab sessions to be very interesting.
Thedepth of pathology and physiology was very challenging to
learn, but the physical specimens were always very interesting.

Work

Benn Stockdale, Bachelor of Radiography and
MedicalImaging
A typical work day for Benn generally involves seeing
between 20 and 30 patients for x-ray or CT examinations.

Mikaela Vaughan, Bachelor of Physiotherapy

I spend much of the time coordinating the more complex


or urgent procedures with doctors and nursing staff
or fast-tracking abnormal results so treatment can be
undertaken more quickly.

Benn says that working in a regional area is particularlyenjoyable.


Although I work in a department with just one other
radiographer you become very close to the team you
workwith. I have the opportunity to work independently
andin all fields of medical imaging each day.
