  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours);
  • Bachelor of Science (including double degrees), dependent on the completion of specified units (see below); or,
  • Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Gippsland Partnership Program) from Federation University.

Bachelor of Science specified units

A minimum of 5 of the following units must be completed within the Science degree to be eligible for Graduate Entry Medicine:

  • BCH2011: Structure and function of cellular biomolecules
  • BCH2022: Metabolic basis of human diseases
  • DEV2011: Early human development from cells to tissues
  • DEV2022: Human anatomy and development: Tissues and body systems
  • GEN2052: Genomics and population genetics
  • IMM2011: Basic immunology: The body's defence system
  • IMM2022: Immunology in health and disease
  • MIC2011: Introduction to microbiology and microbial biotechnology
  • MIC2022: Microbes in health and disease
  • MCB2011: Molecular biology and the cell
  • MCB2022: The dynamic cell
  • PHA2022: Drugs and society
  • PHY2011: Neuroscience of communication, sensory and control systems
  • PHY2032: Human physiology: Hormonal and digestive systems
  • PHY2042: Human physiology: Cardiovascular, respiratory and renal systems

Important Notes

  • At least 70% of the available places in the Graduate Entry Medicine program are reserved for students who have completed the full three-year Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash University.
  • Bachelor of Science students who only have 4 specified units of study but have a major sequence in one of the key Biomedical Science areas (Pharmacology, Physiology, Immunology, Biochemistry, Microbiology or Genetics), may be deemed eligible for entry and will be assessed on a case by case basis.
  • Applications are assessed on an applicant's undergraduate degree only. Any further results, including graduate study or honours, are not taken into consideration. For those who have not yet completed their degree, the minimum WAM must be reached after Semester 1 results of the final year. Opting for an SFR does not affect your eligibility to apply.
  • Applicants are not required to sit the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) for this course. Applicants should be aware, however, that admission is highly competitive and we recommend that students consider alternative options for graduate entry medical courses including those where GAMSAT is a requirement.
