What will I learn?

Designed for students who have completed their undergraduate studies and are committed to professional training, this unique MD recognises both the personal and professional development of each individual.

The degree builds on prerequisite knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry acquired through undergraduate study. It delivers advanced clinical and academic training to ensure students are prepared for the challenges of a high quality medical internship. There are three clinical school zones involved with the MD course and individual hospitals within each zone.

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) is a four year full-time course comprising:

  • One year of integrated bioscience and clinical learning featuring an innovative case-based teaching approach
  • Two core clinical training years which facilitate learning with patients in a wide range of settings
  • MD Research Project in which you will be immersed in a single medical discipline and complete a research project
  • A capstone semester in which you will "rehearse" the skills required for effective and safe clinical practice
  • An annual medical conference which will provide opportunities to interact with leaders in research, policy and clinical healthcare
