1 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 Want to be a Doctor? Are you SURE ???

2 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 OK IF you ACCEPT and UNDERSTAND the CHALLENGES, SACRIFICES and EXPENSES. IF YOU ARE SURE THEN … No Problem… No Worries

3 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 For example:- 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, 2030, 2031, 2032….. If you have interrupted schooling are you happy to study for up to 25 years to become a doctor? The Tertiary Entrance Score for University to be a DOCTOR is 98 or 99%. This is VERY difficult. AND 25 years is TOO long to try for it!!!!! HELP!!! I need a DOCTOR!! And it costs thousands and thousands of dollars too!!! !!!***$$$$$$$$$$****!!!

4 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 If you are new to the country and your English is not good can you understand and learn all the language you need to become a doctor?? acid: This is anything that gives off H+ ions in water. Acids have a pH less than 7 and are good at dissolving metals. They turn litmus paper red and phenolphthalein colorless. acid anhydride: This is an oxide that forms an acid when you stick it in water. An example is SO3 - when you add water it turns into sulfuric acid, H2SO4. acid dissociation constant (Ka): This is equal to the ratio of the concentrations of an acid's conjugate base and the acid present when a weak acid dissociates in water. That is, if you have a solution of Acid X where the concentration of the conjugate base is 0.5 M and the concentration of the acid is 10 M, the acid dissociation constant is 0.5/10 = activated complex: In a chemical reaction, the reagents have to join together into a great big blob before they can fall back apart into the products. This great big blob is called the activated complex (a.k.a. transition state) For Example

5 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 and so on ….. activation energy: The minimum amount of energy needed for a chemical reaction to take place. For some reactions this is very small (it only takes a spark to make gasoline burn). For others, it's very high (when you burn magnesium, you need to hold it over a Bunsen burner for a minute or so). activity series: This is when you arrange elements in the order of how much they tend to react with water and acids. actual yield: When you do a chemical reaction, this is the amount of chemical that you actually make (i.e. The amount of stuff you can weigh). addition reaction: A reaction where atoms add to a carbon-carbon multiple bond. adsorption: When one substance collects of the surface of another one. alcohol: An organic molecule containing an -OH group aldehyde: An organic molecule containing a -COH group alkali metals: Group I in the periodic table. alkaline earth metals: Group II in the periodic table. alkane: An organic molecule which contains only single carbon-carbon bonds. alkene: An organic molecule containing at least one C=C bond alkyne: An organic molecule containing at least one C-C triple bond. allotropes: When you have different forms of an element in the same state. The relationship that white phosphorus and red phosphorus have to each other is that they're allotropes. alloy: A mixture of two metals. Usually, you add very small amounts of a different element to make the metal stronger and harder. alpha particle: A radioactive particle equivalent to a helium nucleus (2 protons, 2 neutrons) amine: An organic molecule which consists of an ammonia molecule where one or more of the hydrogen atoms has been replaced by organic groups. amino acid: The basic building blocks of proteins. They're called "amino acids" because they're both amines (they contain nitrogen) and acids (carboxylic acids, to be precise)

6 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 An on …. alpha particle: A radioactive particle equivalent to a helium nucleus (2 protons, 2 neutrons) molecule has some charge separation (usually because the molecule is polar), it's said to have a dipole moment. dipole-dipole force: When the positive end of a polar molecule becomes attracted to the negative end of another polar molecule. dissociation: When water dissolves a compound. distillation: This is when you separate a mixture of liquids by heating it up. The one with the lowest boiling point evaporates first, followed by the one with the next lowest boiling point, etc. double-displacement reaction (a.k.a. double replacement reaction): When the cations of two ionic compounds switch places. effusion: When a gas moves through an opening into a chamber that contains no pressure. Effusion is much faster than diffusion because there are no other gas molecules to get in the way. electrolysis: When electricity is used to break apart a chemical compound. electrolyte: An ionic compound that dissolves in water to conduct electricity. Strong electrolytes break apart completely in water; weak electrolytes only fall apart a little bit. (Actually, this isn't entirely true, as Raji Heyovska informs me. Apparently strong electrolytes also dissociate partially in water, though much more so than weak ones. For more info, check out his paper at inst.cas.cz/~rheyrovs. However, it is also true that the usual definition of a strong electrolyte is one that dissociates completely in water, which is why I include that definition above.)http://www.jh- inst.cas.cz/~rheyrovs electron affinity: The energy change that accompanies the addition of an electron to an atom in the gas phase. electronegativity: A measurement of how much an atom tends to steal electrons from atoms that it's bonded to. Elements at the top right of the periodic table (excluding the noble gases) are very electronegative while atoms in the bottom left are not very electronegative (a.k.a. "electropositive") electropositive: When something is not at all electronegative. In fact, it tends to lose electrons rather than to gain them. Elements that are electropositive are generally to the left and bottom of the periodic table. empirical formula: A reduced molecular formula. If you have a molecular formula and you can reduce all of the subscripts by some constant number, the result is the empirical formula. emulsion: When very small drops of a liquid are suspended in another. An example of an emulsion is salad dressing after you've shaken it up. enantiomers: molecules that are nonsuperimposable mirror images of each other. endothermic: When a process absorbs energy (gets cold).

7 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 THINK ABOUT THIS Most students who have grown up in Australia CANNOT be doctors. BUT There are MANY other GOOD JOBS in the MEDICAL and HEALTH area that you CAN study for. T.E.R of 98 or 99%?? What OTHER things can I study? And thousands and thousands of dollars !!!$$$$$$!!! NO WAY!! Forget it!!!

8 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 Why do people want to be doctors? Usually, because they want to HELP people. But MANY other jobs in the HEALTH area HELP people too! Before we look at other jobs, think about this question.

9 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 Let’s Look at Some of These Other Jobs

22 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 These are just SOME jobs you can think about. Now you need to think about finding the RIGHT COURSES to study for the job you want.

23 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 And the way to study for them (the pathway) is similar to the pathways you have just seen for some of the jobs in Health and Medicine. ALL courses need you to be able to do 2 very important things. HOWEVER

24 Win Madigan Western English Language School Be able to express yourself fluently both in SPEAKING and in WRITING in English. 2. Be able to READ and UNDERSTAND all the work you are required to do in the course.

25 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 SO, you must remember this when you are thinking about your future. BE REALISTIC AND SENSIBLE For example:-

26 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 WHY SHOULDN’T I GO TO HIGH SCHOOL??? FIRSTLY, YOU ARE NEARLY 18. MANY HIGH SCHOOLS SAY N0 TO STUDENTS WHO ARE 18. SECONDLY YOU HAVE MISSED A LOT OF SCHOOL. HIGH SCHOOL WILL BE TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOU. THIRDLY, YOUR ENGLISH IS NOT YET GOOD ENOUGH TO DO YEARS 11 AND 12. YOU SHOULD GO TO TAFE. THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD THINGS YOU CAN STUDY THERE. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CONTINUE YOUR ENGLISH STUDY AND THEN GET HELP TO FIND THE BEST COURSE FOR YOU. YOU CAN SUCCEED IF YOU GO TO TAFE. WHAT CAN I DO IF I DON’T GO TO HIGH SCHOOL.

27 Win Madigan Western English Language School 2007 How can I find out about courses at TAFE? One way is to look in the TAFE Courses Directory on the Internet Here is how you do it:
