Program description

Bachelor's in Medical Science and Medicine

The Monash School of Medicine is internationally recognised for providing a world-class educational experience by providing a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to medical training. We are the only Victorian university to offer a Direct Entry medical program for students completing year 12 as well as a Graduate Entry program leading to the same degree – Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (MD)

Whichever pathway you take to Medicine at Monash, you will be challenged by a community where the discoveries of our world-renowned researchers are put into clinical practice. You will have access to the largest healthcare provider network in Australia, which includes the Monash Medical Centre and The Alfred, Melbourne's major casualty hospital.

The course offers an integrated curriculum, taught in an interdisciplinary fashion around four broad themes by staff from across the faculty, and in a wide range of learning environments, both on-campus and in clinical settings.

For school-leaver students, the first two years are largely campus-based, although with some city and rural clinical placements. Years three to five are conducted in clinical settings, generally in hospitals and practices across metropolitan Melbourne and rural Victoria. Year five offers the chance for selective studies.

Once you commence the clinical component of the MD, you will experience the additional benefits of longitudinal education in one of Monash’s many clinical schools. These home bases will allow you to embed within your clinical school and the affiliated health services for an extended period of time providing you with the opportunity to form ongoing relationships with clinical supervisors and to develop scholarly research projects that will support better care of patients in that setting.

The Graduate Entry program is available to students who have completed a Monash degree in Biomedical Science, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy or Science (with specified units completed). The first year of this four-year degree is offered at Monash University's School of Rural Health in Churchill, with the further three years undertaken in Metropolitan Melbourne or rural Victoria clinical locations.

The MD qualification will open up opportunities to specialise further and to pursue your passion and discover ways to make a difference through your commitment to the field of medicine.

On completion of The Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (MD) you are eligible for provisional registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and the Medical Board of Australia. After serving a compulsory internship year of residence in an approved hospital, you become eligible for final registration in Victoria and other states of Australia.

Admission requirements

Entry requirements vary depending on your program. Most Masters degrees require an average of 65% (or equivalent) in your Bachelor degree, and Bachelor degrees each have unique entry scores. For more information about local and international curricula, please contact Monash.
