Share your experiences in the new AMAQ Student-Only discussion forum

AMA Queensland has just launched a new Student-Only forum on Queensland Doctors’ Community (QDC)  for student members to have peer-to-peer discussions on issues that are uniquely relevant to you, including tips for medical school exams/OSCEs, advice on best study resources, where to get mental health support if needed.

The forum is designed to bring all students closer and allow you to create networks across Queensland.  

The new student-only forum gives you the opportunity to discuss challenges, seek support, share ideas and experiences, ask advice, pose questions, and connect with other student members.

Have your say today!

I really enjoyed getting guidance and advice from extremely knowledgeable clinicians who have already been through the entire process. Learning the importance of clinical experience, patient advocacy, and work-life balance particularly as to how it relates to the Northern Territory” - Samuel, 2nd year medical student.
