Medical Science Sydney, the world’s largest medical school, is a popular choice for anyone with disabilities.
It’s also home to the world-leading Gravity Medicine department, and its unique approach to health care has helped make it one of the top performing medical schools in the country.
Dr Stephen Lohrer, Gravity Medicine director, said students who were diagnosed with diabetes, depression, anxiety or other medical conditions were particularly interested in learning how gravity works.
“They are attracted to the idea of a more holistic approach to medicine because they are seeing how gravity is involved with a whole range of issues in our lives, including managing depression, PTSD, anxiety, and other illnesses,” he said.
“When you see people who have had a difficult time with depression and anxiety, it’s really easy to get the idea that gravity is the way to go.”
And they’re going to be really interested to learn how gravity affects how they think, feel and feel about themselves, how they see the world, and what their goals are.
It seems like the more you know about gravity, the better you understand it, the less it takes you to think about it and the more it will help you live your life, Dr Lahrer said. “
There’s a lot of emphasis on teaching students about the science of gravity.

“It’s like you can’t see gravity, but you can see it’s making it. “
The gravities are in the air, so gravity is what the air is making,” he explained.
You can see how gravity changes how the air behaves.” “
But you can actually feel it.

Dr Rachael McNeil, the Gravity Medical Science chairperson, said the medical school had also been successful at bridging the gap between the general public and the medical community.
“We’ve got a really great mix of people in the medical world who have been looking for an opportunity to work here, so they have had the opportunity to learn about the medical field from a medical perspective,” she said.
Dr McNeil said a number of new medical students had come to the school since the 2017 coronavirus pandemic.
“One of our main things was to have people who are interested in medical science coming to the medical program, so we had a really good mix of students coming in from across the country,” she added.
“So it’s definitely helped us build the capacity to be able to train medical students and doctors in the future.”
Dr McNeill said students were often able to learn the basics of medicine as well as being able to apply their medical knowledge to different areas of the workplace.
“Some of the doctors who have come through here have gone on to become very successful in their careers, so you have a good mix here,” she explained.
Dr Lohner said he was thrilled to have the Gravity Health program open to students in the first year.
“Students can now go to the Gravity health program and they can learn about medical science and then apply that knowledge to their practice,” he added.
