Meet: Harry Suthendran, a Doctor of Dental Surgery student from Canada.
Charlie Stanford, Master of Speech Pathology (United States & Australia)
"I’ve found all the coursework fascinating. It’s been so interesting to break down communication to its smallest theoretical and anatomical/physiological parts and then see how it all works together. It’s also interesting to see what happens when something goes awry with communication due to a brain injury or developmental disorder."
Dominique Lung, Doctor of Dental Surgery (Canada)
"I have wanted to be a dentist since I was about 9 years old, and I am really happy to have had the opportunity to fulfil a childhood dream. I think that it is amazing that by just completing the Doctor of Dental Surgery I am prepared to work in the field of dentistry straight away."
Harry Suthendran, Doctor of Dental Surgery (Canada)
"Based in a hospital at the heart of Melbourne, you get clinical exposure to a diverse patient population from an early point in the degree. Treating patients from children to elderly with varying medical backgrounds helps develop and refine knowledge taught in lectures and clinical skills learnt in laboratories."
Jessica Wong, Doctor of Medicine (Canada)
"During my medical studies, I grew to understand how important it is in medical practice to see patients within their cultural context and heritage... Now, as a junior doctor, I am putting the medical knowledge gained at university into real clinical practice in the well-supported environment of an internship."
Josh Walt, Doctor of Medicine (Canada)
"The University of Melbourne has a wide range of opportunities for international students...The Faculty also does an excellent job ensuring that its program provides students with a unique clinical experience to develop patient centred skills in conjunction with lecture based material to consolidate learning."
Mani Moniri, Doctor of Medicine (Canada)
"The medical program itself and my interactions with other students and Faculty have really increased my confidence in my abilities. There is fantastic clinical exposure, an amazing cohort of students I call colleagues and friends, and a supportive faculty who are passionate about teaching and training the next generation of doctors."
Wilfred Ly, Doctor of Physiotherapy (Canada)
"The Doctor of Physiology program truly challenged me to become the best student and physiotherapist. Instructors and clinical educators not only expected great foundational knowledge, but also expected me to critically think and implement the highest standard of care."
