Welcome to the new and improved Ductus – conveniently connecting you to the evolving world of medicine.

We’ll be publishing regular and engaging content that is sure to get your blood pumping. Ranging from interviews with prominent doctors to articles on major medical student events, Ductus will be the digital destination for all things medicine.

Previously, Ductus was published as a biannual magazine. But, in this era of rapid innovation where online media dominates, we decided to make Ductus great again and go online.

We welcome submissions as well! Contact publications@unms.org.au if you’re interested in joining the team and/or writing an article. Don’t hesitate to reach out even if you have self-diagnosed writer’s block!

Sometimes we’ll be serious. Other times we’ll be light-hearted. On that note, we’ll leave you with a savage quote from the literary genius, Mark Twain…

“The man who doesn’t read has no advantage over the man who can’t read.”
