First year biomed or health science (premed) program is the pathway in order to study medicine at the University of Auckland in New Zealand.

To become a doctor in New Zealand, you must go to medical school either at University of Auckland or University of Otago, to attain the MBChB degree (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery)

Medical school itself lasts 5 years, and entry into medical school requires either doing the premed program competitively or completing a bachelor's degree and entering as a post-graduate.

  In this video I explain everything about how to get into and survive premed (biomed/health science) program at the University of Auckland.

In this video I explain:

1. How to become a doctor in New Zealand

2. How to enter premed at University of Auckland

3. How to calculate points for premed

4. Common myths and preconceptions about biomed and healthsci

5. How score for medical school entry is calculated

6. The correct mindset before entering premed

7. Structure of a semester

8. What is study efficiency

9. Why study efficiency is critical

10. How much is the biomed/healthsci workload compared to high school?

11. Core paper overview

12. Typical week of university schedule

13. Long term retention study methods

14. Why confusion is healthy for learning

CRITICAL THINKING!




In UCAT, the ability to read and comprehend questions is the FIRST barrier to overcome - lots of students find this scary and challening.

In premed (Auckland or Otago 1st year Biomed and health science), students find the HUGE amount of content overwhelming.

Therefore the real game changer in success in grades in first year premed is about EFFICIENCY.
Spend least amount of time and quickly decipher the UCAT questions by sharpening your critical thinking skills!

I have distilled the most practical and useful part of critical thinking based on my experience through premed (biomed/health science) and medical school in University of Auckland (MBChB) NZ, into 3 components:

Everything about hospital day in the life of Junior Doctor (House Officer) in Auckland New Zealand

NZ Doctor Jae wrote the post • 0 comments • 325 views • 2020-01-30 16:33 • added this tag no more than 24h

 
In this video I explain what it is like to be a junior doctor in Auckland New Zealand.

After entering medical school from premed (biomed and health science first year), you undergo 5 years of proper medical school.

After graduating from medical school,(MBChB), you become a house officer. I explain in detail the typical day of a house officer in the urban hospitals around Auckland.

The days are occupied with coordinator and administration tasks but also there is opportunity to shine your clinical skills during the after hours and being on call, where you will be the only house officer looking after multiple wards at once.

If you need a quick double eyelid job done but you only have 30 seconds, follow this simple demonstration video and you will be a PRO in no time! Steps: 1. Work 15 hours straight in a hospital as a junior doctor 2. Be tired 3. Have no prior eyelid surgery done 4. rub your eyes and cast the magic spell I apologise about the prank. Share it with your friends! For actually useful information, watch my other videos. Double eyelid surgery (쌍꺼풀 수술) is one of the most common cosmetic plastic surgery in South Korea. Apparently, it makes your eyes look bigger and prettier. Some girls get it as a birthday present.

When you enter premed (first year biomed and health science) in Auckland University New Zealand, this is the first step towards becoming a doctor.

Upon graduating medical school (MBChB), you will become a house officer (junior doctor)

As a house officer you will face some challenges. It may be an emotional roller coaster. Medicine can be one of the most rewarding careers but also it can be exceptionally challenging - not only physically but also mentally and emotionally.

Some things may be outside your control. You may find some people particularly challenging to work with - but instead of accepting adversity, you always need to think and act in the best interests of the people who rely on you - your patients
In this video I talk about

1. Hard and frustrating things as a junior doctor in Auckland New Zealand,

2. Most emotional moment in 3 years of being a house officer.

Summary of answers:

New virus infection – novel Coronavirus, thought to originate from a seafood market in Wuhan City in China

First case detected in December 2019 in China, Now spread to other regions like Hongkong, Macau, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Australia, France

4000+ confirmed cases worldwide

100+ people have died in China attributed to the virus (many already fragile health)

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause airway infections – common cold to serious lung infections. They circulate among animals

Viruses can mutate at high frequencies and adapt, survive better in changing environments

New strains of coronaviruses may appear periodically, like the ones caused SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2015 outbreak. This is a new strain.

In some people, it has the potential to cause pneumonia, multi organ failure and death. But it doesn’t happen in everybody.

I am not a specialist expert on coronavirus infections. The tips are based on general guidance from official advisory organizations such as the World Health Organisation.

My views have no association with the views of other organizations, hospitals or health providers or academic institutions, except for the world health organization.

If you have any concerns - please contact your local GP/medical practice or emergency department.

As everyone may be aware, there is a recent outbreak of 2019 nCOV: Wuhan chinese coronavirus. Officials report that it may be similar to the MERS(Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome) or SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). There are now confirmed cases in other asian countries as well as in the United States.


The two things I am concerned about is how contagious and how lethal the virus infection is.

I have cancelled my flight to Shanghai, China in March

Use this map to track the 2019 nCoV. It tells you how far the coronavirus infection has spread, including death tolls.

Wuhan is a city on the eastern front of china. The first case was reported to be linked to a local fish/meat market. It is nice to know that there are a few things everyone can do to reduce the spread of the virus infection that we don't know much about.

Please share this video to let others know. All it takes is just a click

It has been approximately a month since the first case was reported in Wuhan city in China. Now it has spread to other asian countries and also the United States.

There is not yet official recommendation about restricting travel and trade - so we need to be on high alert to make sure our decisions are necessary (that the risks and benefits are well thought out) view all

A New Zealand citizen trapped at the epicentre of China's coronavirus outbreak is pleading with the government to do more to get New Zealanders out.







Joanna - who works as a software engineer in New York and asked not to be named - travelled to Wuhan on 20 January to visit her father for the Chinese New Year.




She's now stuck in the locked-down city and has not left the house for five days for fear of catching the deadly virus.




Joanna, who only wanted her first name used, told Checkpoint she had tried to seek assistance from the New Zealand embassy in Beijing, but was told they were on holiday until Wednesday.




After calling an emergency hotline, she was directed to register online at SafeTravel.govt.nz and to wait for further details, she said.




"I feel a little disappointed since many other countries are taking action already, but it seems like the New Zealand government is falling behind."
