In 2022 students who are accepted into the Oxford Bioethics program will be based in Australia with one Australian Bioethics supervisor and one Oxford bioethics supervisor.
Students will meet regularly with their Oxford supervisor by zoom.
For the last ten years, medical students have undertaken BMedSc(Hons) in Bioethics at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics at Oxford University under the supervision of Professor Julian Savulescu. The Faculty is pleased to announce that such an opportunity will again be possible in 2022 in conjunction with the Centre for Human Bioethics at Monash University. Students will be based in Melbourne at Eastern Health Clinical School or at the Monash Centre for Human Bioethics, with a co-supervisor at the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics in Oxford.

Students choosing an Oxford based program will be co-supervised by a member of the Uehiro Centre and a member of the Centre for Human Bioethics. Students will be provided with access to bioethics educational resources and have the opportunity to attend relevant lectures, seminars and workshops. However the work will be primarily research and a high level of independence and maturity are required.
This scholarship was established from funds donated by the Victorian Medical Insurance Agency and introduced to encourage and attract students to pursue an undergraduate honours degree in medical sciences. The scholarship will assist financially disadvantaged students, who may not have had the opportunity to complete their degree without the scholarship, to gain a greater understanding of academic medicine whilst making their own contribution to the advancement of knowledge. As a condition of this scholarship, recipients will provide leadership, tutoring and mentoring to other medical students residing in on campus accommodation.
This bursary has been introduced to support students who want to pursue a BMedSc(Hons) project with the School of Rural Health. The bursary will assist students financially, and is provided whether projects are based at one of our rural sites or have components that can be conducted from Melbourne. Once students identify a project and co-supervisors, the details of the bursary support can be determined with the project supervisors.
One type of bursary is available.
Up to $10,000 is available for student support. Examples of this support includes accommodation at an MRH site, conference support, research upskilling short courses.
One bursary per student (student cannot hold another BMedSc(Hons) scholarship concurrently).
Domestic student accepted and enrolled into BMedSc(Hons) course in 2021.
