The Doctor of Medicine is a four-year full-time course available to both Australian and international students. 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. The Doctor of Medicine (MD) comprises: - 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 - Scholarly Selective subjects in which each student is immersed in a single medical discipline and completes a research project - A capstone semester in which students "rehearse" the skills required for effective and safe clinical practice - An annual medical conference to provide opportunities to interact with leaders in research, policy and clinical healthcare .

Standard entry requirements

  • Undergraduate degree completed within 10 years prior to entry to the course, including anatomy, physiology and biochemistry pre-requisite subjects at 2nd year university level
  • Plus GAMSAT (or MCAT for international students outside of Australia)
  • And a multi mini interview for shortlisted candidates.


The Doctor of Medicine is accredited by the Australian Medical Council.

Study pathways

The University of Melbourne's Bachelor of Biomedicine or Bachelor of Science are ideal pathways to this graduate program, although these particular degrees are not pre-requisites for the MD.
