Medicine Pathway Preparatory Course (MPPC) For Year 9 to Year 12 students
Medicine is a challenging, exciting and dynamic field. The training required in gaining accreditation and recognition in this rewarding career is a rigorous, decade long journey that begins immediately after high school. The competitiveness of medicine demands perseverance and tenacity from the candidate in order to see them through their journey from end to end. The acceptance criteria for admission are stringent and demonstrate a level of rigor that mimics the intensity one can expect in their training. The consortium of Australian universities that provide undergraduate admission into medicine rely on three key success factors to gauge a candidate’s aptitude and competency: their academic merit (ATAR), their select entrance exam ranking (UCAT or ISAT) and their interview performance. These factors do not exist in isolation; they complement one another and, together, they help to provide universities with valuable insight into a candidate’s potential and their ability to successfully navigate their way through an intensive course.
Golden Key’s Medicine Pathway Preparatory Course (MPPC) is an intensive program for year 9 to 12 students aimed at readying aspiring candidates for their entry into undergraduate medicine. The program is delivered through small class sizes, typically groups of 5 to 7 students, to ensure that each student receives the close support they deserve to excel. Unlike existing preparation programs, MPPC encompasses more than just the UCAT or ISAT. We support and facilitate the student’s experience through their entire journey toward medicine: from academic merit to bespoke entrance exams to the daunting interview process.
