Hi all haven't posted for a while but I just received an offer for Midwifery and GU anyone else?
Thanks for the congratulations Ladies - and congrats to all who have been successful
I'm a little worried at the moment though since becoming pregnant it changes things a little and I really need to ask some questions but can't get on to anyone at Griffith!!!
I chose Redlands for my hospital but I'm on the northside and with bub on the way I want to make things easier for myself so I was going to ask about being able to select a closer hospital.... I'm worried it won't be as good though being at a different hospital to my fellow students?
Also I don't really know if I will fit in the first semester anyway! My due date is June 29th... does anyone know what the dates are for semster 1?
I've just jumped online and I'm finding the timetable quite confusing to make sense of as well - oh dear lol
RE: the timetable - we don't allocate as such to labs tutes etc because these are all covered in the 2 weeks intensive at the beginning of the semester for everyone. All you really need to do is enroll in each course. You only need to go to the ANC in first semester to recruit your CoC women (3 for 1st semester) so if you can get those done early you should be finished well before your EDD. & the exam should be in early June but best to check this for certain as you've been trying to do.
I am pretty sure it would be a no from GU as they already have agreements in place with their teaching hospitals. It is a lot more complicated than just saying " oh i want to go to xyz hospital". The uni has to have agreements, clinical support in place, etc. Also the north side hospitals tend to be affiliated with ACU/UQ/QUT. That's why they make people put in their hospital preferences when applying, to warn people those hospitals are it!I chose Redlands for my hospital but I'm on the northside and with bub on the way I want to make things easier for myself so I was going to ask about being able to select a closer hospital...
But you can always ask! I just know that even if a woman approached us who was going to a different hospital than our teaching ones, we weren't allowed to have them as a COC.
Has anyone thought about Grad year? Is it that common in QLD for midwives? It seems to be big in other states. I keep hearing people go on about the lack of jobs for DEM's...
yes, that is the norm & especially with CoC as we cannot follow them if they are birthing outside of our allocated hospital. But there is a student doing placement at Redcliffe hosp & GU may be able to negotiate an agreement for another student. It would be worthwhile OneLove asking Mary about it to see if it is a possibility for her.
Those people who have already received an offer to study BMID at GU for next year did you all already have a prior degree?
I'm getting so nervous about my internal transfer i'm sitting on a rank of 92 and just wish they'd hurry up and approve it.
