Year 5D medicine

Year 5D placements

Year 5D transitions students into the medical workplace as trainee interns. It is structured as a series of six six-week clinical rotations in aged care, emergency medicine, medicine, surgery, a specialty, and a scholarly intensive placement (SIP) rotation.

Any one or more of these can be undertaken in rural locations in either the north-west or south-east regions. This gives students an opportunity to experience rural practice in their final year. All students must complete at least four weeks in a rural location during their five-year course. A final year rotation allows all students to meet this requirement.

Accommodation is provided close to the hospitals at a subsidised rental.

Regional and rural placements are open to all Monash medical students as well as final year students from other universities in Australia and overseas.
