Applicants must sit GAMSAT and apply through the GEMSAS online application system, identifying themselves as of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent in the appropriate section of this form. As part of the GEMSAS application, completion of a written Portfolio is required to be considered for a place at UOW. This will become automatically available online when applicants elect UOW as a preference through the GEMSAS portal; applicants do not need to submit a separate application to the GM.
The UOW GM Admissions Portfolio is a written description of an applicant’s experiences and achievements. Applicants have the opportunity to highlight areas of achievement, leadership, teamwork, service ethic and commitment as well as ties to regional, rural and remote communities.
To assist applicants in preparing their portfolio responses, the Portfolio Template and Portfolio Guidelines are available to assist applicants in drafting their responses.

The GM Admissions Portfolio may take time to complete and it is recommended that all applicants commence preparation early.

The GM recommends all applicants apply via GEMSAS. This application process provides greater flexibility and more options for applicants as it allows preferencing of up to six medical schools.
