Meet our inspiring alumni

"Biomedicine challenged me because some of the core subjects were not ones that I would have picked myself...but I am glad I did them because many covered things I needed to know for future study and a career in medicine."

Meet Gabrielle

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Biomedicine, Dr Gabrielle Cutler reflects on the challenge of being pushed outside her comfort zone during her undergraduate studies. It was what inspired her.

With more than 1000 Breadth subjects to choose from, Gabrielle was able to continue to develop her Indonesian language skills and also took AUSLAN and deafness and communication subjects. These were available outside the main fields of study in her Biomedicine degree.

“This was so useful to understand the deaf community from a perspective other than the medical model,” she says.

Completing her Doctor of Medicine at the University's Shepparton campus, Gabrielle says she has made life-long friendships in the small Biomedicine student cohort. Some joined her in studying medicine and others went on to pursue research or public health pathways.

Gabrielle has since secured an internship at the Northern Hospital where she is applying her knowledge and skills in a public hospital setting.
