Jem Herbert on why he chose Trinity and why music brings out the best in him

According to Jem Herbert, his love of classical music has always brought out the best in him. It’s what drove him to join the Australian Boys’ Choir after a childhood spent in the Victorian High Country. It’s what drove him to leave home at age 13 to study music. It’s what delivered him to the gates of Trinity College, where he became a member of the Choir of Trinity College, music director of the Trinity Tiger Tones, and writer of one of our musicals.

Surgery in space. 3D-printed spines. Alvin Pun explains some of the lesser-known aspects of surgery

It took Alvin Pun (TCFS 1993) a long time to work out what he wanted to do with his life, and even longer to decide which stream of medicine he wanted to follow, having assumed that once he graduated from med school he would just be a ‘doctor’. But eventually he worked it out, as most students do, and is now a leading spine surgeon. Here he gives insight into his career choice, why seeing a surgeon costs so much, and why the life of a surgeon isn’t as glamorous as you may think.
