Seminar Overview:

Gaining acceptance into a medical or dental course in Australia has never been more difficult. Besides achieving an astoundingly high ATAR, students are also expected to come out as a top performer on the UCAT and interview, in addition to balancing voluntary work with their personal commitments and family life. Unfortunately, in spite of the significant amounts of time and effort they put in, many promising students still find themselves falling short due to a lack of insight into these assessments, poor self-awareness or ineffective planning.


This professional development session aims to:

  1. Provide facts, timelines, insights and recommendations for career practitioners in order to help students interested in medicine and dentistry to plan for this incredibly demanding year.
  2. Eliminate the mystique associated with the UCAT (in comparison to the UMAT) and the interview process by addressing questions such as what they involve, what they assess, what role they play in the selection process (e.g. marking process and approximate cut-off scores), why students find them so challenging, what effective preparation should look like, and when to commence preparation in order to reduce the stress of Year 12.
  3. Address any questions and concerns submitted by career practitioners before the workshop by sharing relevant and practical advice that is applicable to worried students.


iCanMed is now working with over 300 schools across the country to provide free resources, regular updates and free workshops. Through talking to thousands of students, as well as many parents and careers practitioners, we are on the front line of the medical-entry and dental-entry process. As a qualified team of educators, assessment writers and interviewers, we are excited to share our insights into everything that students need to know when choosing medicine or dentistry as their future career.
