Foundation studies in Churchill
Monash Rural Health Churchill delivers Year A of the four-year graduate entry medical program. Co-located with the Gippsland campus of Federation University, Monash Rural Health Churchill offers complete library services, a sophisticated clinical skills simulation environment and close ties with practising clinicians. We also have partnerships with health and community support agencies throughout Gippsland.
Graduate entry students have the opportunity to undertake clinical placements with Monash's clinical teaching sites in metropolitan Melbourne as well the Gippsland region and north-west Victoria. Once students begin clinical training the program is the same for graduate entry and direct entry students. Direct entry students also undertake clinical placements at these metropolitan and regional/rural clinical teaching sites.
