Domestic applicants admissions requirements 

Applications to be considered for a place in this program will be open to students who have completed the following Monash University degrees with a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 70 or above:

  • Bachelor of Biomedical Science (including double degrees)
  • Bachelor of Pharmacy (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours)
  • Bachelor of Science (including double degrees and dependent on the completion of designated units*. See list below)

Applicants who have a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 70 or above may be offered the opportunity to undertake an interview (MMI) and Situational Judgement Test (SJT) based on a ranking system.  This will take place at the Churchill campus in early September.

IMPORTANT:   Offers will be made only to applicants who have attended both the MMI and SJT and are based on the' ranking of their academic performance (40%) and interview / SJT (60%) after final results have been released.

Please note all applicants applying for this course are only allowed to attend the MMI and/or SJT once. Those who are re-applying for this course and have previously attended the MMI and/or SJT for this course are not required to attend the MMI and/or SJT again.

At least 50 of the available places in the Graduate Entry Medicine program are reserved for students who have completed the full three years Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash University.

*The unit code for MOL2011 changed in 2017 to MCB2011. This new unit code will be acceptable for meeting the unit requirements for Graduate Entry Medicine. At this time MCB2022 can also be included as one of the five units.


NOTE: Bachelor of Science students who do not meet the 5 required units of study BUT have a major study sequence in one of the key Biomedical Science areas (including Pharmacology, Physiology, Immunology, Biochemistry, Microbiology or Genetics), may be deemed as eligible for entry. Generally, applicants will require at least 4 of the key units as well as their major sequence in one of the listed discipline areas above. Eligibility will be assessed on a case by case basis.

Applicants who have undertaken the above, clearly defined degrees will NOT be required to undertake the GAMSAT.
