What will I learn?

This on-campus full time course takes a minimum of five (5) years to complete. Years 1-3 of the course are based in Hobart at the Medical Science Precinct, with short placements in rural communities around the State.

In Years 4 and 5, students have the opportunity to complete their degree at the Hobart Clinical School, the Launceston Clinical School or the Rural Clinical School in Burnie. Years 4 and 5 will involve a series of clinical rotations, including some electives.

Course objectives

The five (5) year MBBS will provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to undertake supervised practice as interns in Australia or New Zealand and an appropriate foundation for lifelong learning and further training in any branch of medicine. The scientific basis of medicine and its clinical application will be taught in an integrated manner which will provide not only clinical relevance, across the five (5) years, but also highlight the ethical and professional aspects of medical practice.

Once you've completed the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery, you'll be eligible for provisional registration to work in approved hospitals whilst undertaking training as an intern for one year.

On successful completion of your internship you can gain full registration to work in Australia and New Zealand and can choose, if you wish, to study in an area of specialisation, whilst continuing to work.

Graduates can then choose to specialise in one of a number of fields such as general practice, anaesthesia, dermatology, obstetrics and gynaecology, geriatric medicine, paediatrics, pathology, psychiatry, radiology or surgery.

Graduates may also become medical administrators in hospitals or government departments, or medical academics involved with teaching and medical research.
