Bryn passes first hurdle in goal to become doctor

TOOLOOA State High School graduate Bryn Rohdmann was yesterday celebrating her first preference university offer.

Ms Rohdmann was relaxed in the lead-up, no doubt more comfortable than most after having received an early offer from James Cook University to study medicine.

The study area is the first step in Bryn's long-term goal to improve women's health standards.

"I have always known that I would go to university; it was just a matter of what for," she said.

"Through my life, different career interests came and went, but being a doctor always stuck."

When QTAC's first round offer came, Ms Rohdman received her preference to study medicine at the University of Queensland.

"I didn't expect it, so seeing UQ and MBBS on the screen was incredible," she said.

"Though I would have been happy with my lower preferences, getting into the University of Queensland has just been the pinnacle of my year."

Ms Rohdmann is excited about the challenges ahead for her and said she had found support through her teachers at school.

"The best thing about Toolooa would have to be the quality of teaching," she said. "And it is really beautiful that the teachers say the same thing about the students."
