2021 MD Graduate Entry updates – Domestic students
Updated: 5th August 2020
We are evaluating our current admissions procedures for 2021 graduate entry into the Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (MD) due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.
At this stage, our admissions process for domestic students remains largely unchanged. You should focus on your current studies and prepare for your application to the MD as you would normally.
We are committed to providing an equitable admissions process for all students applying to commence our graduate MD course in 2021. As we adapt, we will continue to take into account the unique challenges you’re facing while you plan your future studies in these challenging times.
Weighted Average Mark (WAM)
When assessing your eligibility for the MD, we will consider your Weighted Average Mark (WAM). In light of the coronavirus situation, the University is allowing you to choose whether your Semester 1, 2020 units contribute to your WAM. For more information about this grading update or to use the online calculator, please visit our website.
Ranking for invitation for an interview will be based on your WAM at the end of Semester 1, 2020, with a minimum of 70 required to be eligible. Offers take into account your final WAM at course completion, your Situational Judgement Test (SJT) score and Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) score.
The Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) is still an entry requirement for the MD in 2021. Due to the current situation and government restrictions that are in place, students will now be required to complete an online 6-station MMI interview and situational judgment test. At this stage, the online MMI completed on the Zoom platform and the SJT will be run via Moodle.
Any further changes to graduate entry requirements or admission processes will be updated on this page. Please check back regularly and monitor the Important Dates page to stay informed.
