Hey all,I'm just after some advice. For the sake of background info, last year I got an interview at JCU and didn't get in. I got an OP3. Poor umat score as well due to only deciding to do it with 1 month until the exam and lack of preparation. Anyway, I'm taking a gap year and working to get some money up and I will do umat WELL and apply to unis around aus that I can get into. Here's my dilemma: I've got 2 jobs going for me: the first is as a medical office assistant at a cataract specialist ophthalmologist whose qualifications are incredibly jaw-dropping as he was dux of all med students across aus and nz in his year of graduation, has done heaps ofgeneral practice, surgery and optometry stuff. The second job is a three-month contract as a theatre orderly where I will be spending time in the hospital bringing patients to the theatre room, light cleaning, being there during anaesthesia, etc etc you get the picture. It's so difficult to choose between them! I'd love to negotiate being the orderly on weekends and with the optometrist during weekdays but I doubt that will work out in my favour. In terms of experience and the value of each job for med, what do you think will be the best job for me to have? The ophthalmologists job is full-time permanent. Edit: I'm a rural student.
