Their claims often have no scientific basis, and create unnecessary fear in society. You are on the advisory board of the Australian Government looking to change the laws on how to deal with improving...

Medicine at Monash or Melbourne?

Medicine at Monash (via UCAT) or Melbourne (via GAMSAT)? A dilemma facing high achievers wanting to pursue medicine is whether to choose Monash University (school leaver entry) or Melbourne University (graduate route).
