University of Notre Dame School of Medicine Scholarship
The University of Notre Dame School of Medicine in Sydney is offering students the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to take part in the “University of Notre Dame School of Medicine, Sydney: Vacation Scholarship Program”.
The program is aimed at inspiring rural students and/or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students towards a career in medicine. The Scholarship will provide them with the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a medical student.
Secondary schools are invited to nominate a maximum of two suitable Year 11 or 12 students to attend a one day workshop at the School in Darlinghurst, Sydney on Friday 5th July 2019. During the day, the students will attend lectures and tutorials run by medical staff and students on topics that are integral to the medical degree. Students will have the chance to participate in a variety of activities such as suturing, plastering, resuscitation skills and medical examination, and will enjoy a tour of Notre Dame’s facilities.
Limited places are available. Successful applicants will receive a scholarship payment of up to $600 to cover transport and travel expenses for the day. They will also be awarded a certificate for their participation.
Students accepted into the Vacation Scholarship Program must be able to travel to Sydney for the annual workshop day scheduled for Friday 5th July 2019, commencing at 9.00am and ending at 4.00pm.
A parent or guardian is welcome to accompany the student on the day. Meals will be provided and the students will be under the supervision and direction of Medical School staff over the course of the day.
Damascus students have attended this event for the past few years and have said they had a fantastic day, so I highly recommend that you apply.
