Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (MD) - Graduate Entry

The four-year Graduate Entry degree is designed for students who have completed their undergraduate studies and are prepared to enter professional training to become a doctor. 

Course content emphasises clinical communication skills and early clinical contact visits to medical practices, community care facilities and hospitals.

Students will complete their first year of study, Year A (pre-clinical year), at the School of Rural Health in Churchill in Gippsland with regular visits to the Clayton campus as part of their studies. The following three years of the program are all spent in clinical environments, and students have the opportunity to complete these placements (Years 3B, 4C and 5D) in metropolitan Melbourne, south-eastern Victoria or north-west Victoria.

The entry requirements for Graduate Entry Medicine are:

  • Domestic applicants must have a specified Monash University degree to be eligible.
  • International applicants must have an internationally recognised degree with significant and broad biomedical science content.

Monash is committed to facilitating the entry of Indigenous students into the graduate entry program. For further information visit the webpage and/or contact the MNHS Indigenous Engagement Officer.
