“Someone standing right next to me was hit by a car. I was the first one of the scene but I didn’t know how to help. They died right in front of me. I felt so helpless. I need to change that. I want to have the skills to help.”

“I watched my grandfather pass away from cancer. He was an inspiration to me and he suffered so much. I was so powerless. I wish I could have helped. I would have done everything possible to help him.”

“When I was overseas I saw people suffering. They didn’t have the basic medical care they needed, and what we have in Australia. They were dying unnecessarily. I want to be able to help. I want to have the skills to go back and make a difference.”

“My dad’s doctor is terrible. The doctor doesn’t seem to care. It’s really upsetting because my dad has cancer and is really scared but this doctor doesn’t care. I want to be a doctor who has empathy for their patients and actually cares.”

“I’ve seen the incredible work that my father does. His patients loved him and I’ve seen the difference he makes in their lives. It’s inspiring and it’s what I want to do too.”

What’s your reason ‘why’?

There’s always a deeper reason than just, “I like science and I like to learn.”

The reason ‘why’ is what drives you. It’s where the passion comes from. It’s what makes you know that this is the right path for you.

In fact, it’s the ONLY path for you.

Medicine, being a doctor or surgeon, saving lives, making a difference, having the skills and knowledge to help, that’s what you want to do with your life.
