Otago University Medical Student – Hey guys. My name is Jack Earp and I’m studying medicine at the University of Otago. I’m currently in my third year here, and I’m really interested in cardiology. I chose the University of Otago because I’m really passionate about medicine and the med school down here does a lot of small group tutorials with a lot of hands-on learning and teaching.

Other reasons I chose Otago were because all the student flats are within a couple of hundred meters to kilometers and what that means is by second or third year you’re sort of flating with a street full of your best mates and close colleagues.
So a typical day for me involves running out of bed not too soon before lectures, because I do live only 30 seconds away. So I can get myself together, walk out the door, and Ill be at uni within sort of 30 to 40 seconds. And the med school down here, does a lot of small group tutorials with a lot of hands-on learning and teaching.
We still get to do dissections, with real bequeathed bodies. It’s a really special program here in Otago. They treat it with a lot of respect and it’s just a really awesome way to link your theory learning with practical learning. This is where I spend a lot of my time in the Hunter Center building here, it’s where all the small group tutorials happen for medicine.
Really hands on and really practical and we have a really good relationship with the community here. What that means is we get a lot of patient visits and we actually go out to the community to visit patients sometimes as well, which really sort of just ties in a bit of more of our clinical aspect to our theory learning at these stages.
Behind me is the original medical school building. It was built in 1875 and was one of the first medical schools in the country to train a Maori doctor as well as a female doctor. This is where I have a lot of my anatomy and physiology teaching.
So is the Anatomy museum where a lot of students come to build a sort of visual learning of what the sort of theory that we’ve doing in terms of anatomy. There’s a heap of resources with plaster models, and actual real human cross sections.
So in here, you can see blood pressure cuff, it’s called a sphygmomanometer. We use that to measure blood pressure and we’ll do a variety of experiments over the course of one lab and sort of just really tie in anat theory learning.
My medical class in 2017 is the first to match the New Zealand population in terms of percentages of age and ethnicity. What this does is it breaks down some disparities in health care and brings a bit more equality to health care in terms of access to resources and access to doctors who know about each culture in New Zealand. And for me personally.
I really love surfing and really love skiing so I’ll shoot out to one of the beaches around here for a surf, maybe Smails Beach or St. Kilda’s. That’s just a really good way for me to clear my head and spend some time with some friends.
I’m here with my friend Cookie. They started the Grin Fin workshop here in Dunedin. Yeah so, my mate and I, we started a bit of a shop called Grin Fin. We’re at the moment just loving making some cool surf boards, some surf fins and what not.
We kind of love the vibe of not making surf boards for a huge profit because we want to get as many people amongst it as possible and getting involved in the process and making a surf board that has extra value and extra meaning to it.
Cool, so this is my board. We’re still in the process, so, you know, it doesn’t look perfect yet, but it will. So I’ve just made a little five-four by 22 by two and a half. Nice little short, fat, with a snub nose. And sort of just getting in touch with your creative side is pretty cool.
I love Otaga University for so many reasons, but one of them is the fact that we’re all together in the same place, that means there’s always something happening, there’s always something to do, there’s always people to see and when you don’t want to spend too much time with people, you want a little bit of a break and to get away, there’s mountains close, there’s the ocean close 119 and there’s heaps of cool tramps and walks and beautiful scenes to see. So there’s always something to do and go away for, for a weekend.
