Student review
The degree offers excellent topics associated with the practice of pramedicine; however, the unfortunately bulk out the degree with irrelevant health science topics. There is no room for elective topics, and thus the degree can at times get dry and boring. The entire process is long and incredibly competitive. Make sure you are passionate prior to starting, otherwise it’s easy to lose inspiration.
