"Having gone through the medicine application cycle myself, I know how relentless and daunting the process is. When I was in Year 12-13, I would have loved the extra insight into the process, what to do, what books to get, how to get the most out of work experience etc. And now, since I’m in this position where I can actually provide help, it made sense for me to get involved.
