Standard entry requirements

  • Year 12 or equivalent
  • Selection via ATAR. Assumed knowledge: Refer to the relevant single degree. From 2019, this course will require a course prerequisite of Mathematics (Band 4 or higher). The assumed knowledge will still apply. During their undergraduate degree, all students in Double Degree Medicine programs must take some units of study in biology, physics and chemistry, and a zero-credit point unit of study in medicine. In addition, students in the Science (Advanced)/Medicine program must take some units of study in mathematics during their undergraduate degree. Additional selection criteria: Entry to double degree medicine is extremely competitive. Selection is on the basis of ATAR or equivalent (expected to be 99.95 for 2017 entry) and performance in an assessment process, including a written assessment and an interview.

Further information

Practical experience: Students will undertake clinical placements throughout the Doctor of Medicine. Contact with patients and observation of the physical aspects of disease commences in the first year of the Doctor of Medicine and continues to the final year. Career opportunities: Examples include general practice or specialisation. Following a compulsory internship, most doctors obtain additional hospital experience. Experience and study under the supervision of one of the specialist colleges is required before gaining specialist qualifications or vocational registration as a general practitioner.
