It Started in the Sunderland returns for one night only.

For half a century, the Med Building on the corner of Grattan Street and Royal Parade in Parkville has been the home of the Melbourne Medical School and the nucleus for medical education at the University of Melbourne, including, more recently, biomedical education.

The front doors may be closed at the moment, but this documentary will give you the chance to walk through this special building and relive your student days, from the comfort of your living room with a glass of wine in hand!

It Started in the Sunderland, which investigates the rich history of the Med Building and some of the incredible stories that began within its walls.

Presented by renowned comedian and MMS alum Rob Sitch (MBBS 1987), the documentary explores the memories, love stories and careers that started in the Med Building. From Parkville to Mount Beauty to Katherine, and all manner of places in between, the film celebrates all those who have studied in the Med Building during its 52-year history.
