New Pathway to Medicine at UON

The University of Newcastle has recently announced that they will be putting side six places a year in their Joint Medical Program for students who apply through the Excellence through Equity Pathway to Medicine.

To be eligible for the pathway, students need to complete either the Open Foundation or Newstep program, satisfy academic and interview criteria, as well as demonstrate socioeconomic disadvantage and three additional equity indicators. These equity indicators are:

  • Financial hardship
  • Regional, rural, remote or isolated area
  • Carer responsibilities
  • Refugee status
  • Sole parent
  • Personal illness or disability
  • Experience of domestic and family violence
  • Out-of-home care experience
  • School status
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

UON hopes that the pathway will help widen access to their Joint Medical Program to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
