2022 Resources

First Year Resources

Welcome freshers to the next glorious 6 years of your lives. You’re in for a jam-packed journey filled with amazing people, inspiring events and impactful advocacy (with a bit of actual medicine on the side). You should’ve gotten a physical umbilical (our guide to everything UNSW first year med) but if you didn’t here it is below! We’ve also put together another info pack for all our international students to help with the transition to life in Australia borders permitting.

Updated 2022 Guides

We also have guides for each new phase of the Medicine course and a separate guide focused on the pros and cons of studying at a Rural Clinical Site (made in conjunction with our Rural Medical Societies and RAHMS).

Hospital Ultimate Guides (HUGs)

New for 2022 we’ve created digital guides for each of our Sydney-based UNSW Hospitals which cover useful topics such as parking, key contacts, ward round times and locations and most importantly – where the best coffee is.
