The first Slice of LIME Seminar was held on 3rd March 2014 with Professor Fred Hafferty from the Mayo Clinic, USA, and focused on admissions criteria. Professor Hafferty led an interactive workshop and discussion on admissions criteria, and the way these criteria can impact on student cohorts and curriculum content.

The group discussed: impact of admissions criteria & practices on quality education; developing criteria to create a cohort aligned with a graduate focus; filtering applicants; shaping applicants through content; curriculum informed by students undertaking the course; indicators measuring quality of education; patients & community involvement; ideal admissions criteria; creating a truly diverse student body, how this impacts on education, curriculum & teaching; Indigenous admissions & curricula enhanced by presence of Indigenous students; alternative entry; & supporting a diverse student body.
