Yes I saw a reel of interviewing people who go wsu they got such low ucat and atars lol and still got in
Nah that must be untrue there’s no way, there’s ppl who got 3000+ ucat with 99+ atar and got no interview 😭
Can u explain this
So registrars locumming involves them taking up excess cases in hospitals, whether they’re from the ED or otherwise. in areas like Sydney, Adelaide, major cities, it’s hard to find a locum job that’ll pay u well. Thru sessional payment (not by the hour, payment by the job), u won’t get paid much if u don’t complete that many jobs. So, registrars (who are doctors in training, not yet specialists) cannot find any permanent jobs at hospitals because the hospitals won’t take them in as a medical officer. This is bc they don’t bring any assets to the hospital, a doctor with experience brings in a lot of patients to the hospital whereas a new doctor/registrar who’s just starting, wont benefit the hospital. How do u bring in patients? By working with GPs and medical centres. New registrars who are just starting out, are finding it hard to partner with GPs bc the GPs are seeing that there are too many registrars to cater for. When GPs get patients, they need to refer that patient to a specialist. They go for the experienced specialists, not the registrar just starting out in their speciality. Hence why there’s a lack of permanent jobs for registrars, so they locum at new places regularly to try to find a job.

Generally favour gws students too, it’s unknown whether the 96 is a hurdle or a minimum, so many 99s got rejected so it was prolly all up to the vr section which is so stupid imo 💀

whu
isn't the number of med students roughly the same if not growing?
personally i would've thought (can't be bothered researching) the shortage would have been caused by med graduates going into specialties due to better working conditions or higher pay
its a shortage in certain areas and concentration of others.

I remember seeing somewhere that it's just an atar cutoff for wsu. Like if u get above 93.5 for gws, or 95.5 for others, they don't care what the actual atar was (treat 96 atar the same as 99.95), ur still through to the next round (decided by ucat). Is this true?

ur half right, but they held interviews in November based on ucat only. then they give offers based on atar, there are no second round interviews
