If you've completed, or are in your final year of, a minimum of a 3-year bachelor's degree (6 semesters full-time), you can apply for the Graduate Entry pathway.
To view the entry requirements for this pathway, see the Doctor of Medicine program.
After you apply, if you're eligible for the next stage, you'll be invited to participate in a multiple mini interview (MMI).
Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee admission.
Understanding key degrees
If you've only completed a bachelor's degree, this is the degree you'll be assessed on – also known as your key degree.
If you've completed a subsequent degree (including a separate honours degree, a graduate diploma, master's or doctoral degree), your most recently completed degree will be used as your key degree.
Medicine requires a range of attributes and your key degree can be in any discipline. We recommend choosing degrees that include studies in biostatistics, anatomy and humanities, as these will help you to progress through the program. Studies involving patient care such as nursing, physiotherapy or pharmacy are also beneficial.
You'll also need to complete the required subject prerequisites.
If your most recent degree is from more than 10 years ago, you may still be able to use it as your key degree if you've since completed approved tertiary study in the 10 years before you plan to start the Doctor of Medicine. You must have:
- completed a full-time semester of study at bachelor level or higher, and
- achieved a minimum GPA of 5.0 on a 7-point scale.
Otherwise, you'll need to complete a new key degree.
