Medicine Update


The Monash University School of Medicine is internationally recognised for providing a world-class education with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to medical training.

The Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (MD) will replace the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (Honours) MBBS for applicants commencing in 2017.  The course is internationally recognised and students will graduate with a higher level qualification.

Deputy Dean of the MD program Professor Michelle Leech explains “the new program will be focused as before on preparing graduates for medical practice with a strong focus on patient safety.  The course will also focus on enhanced research and professional practice skills to equip Monash graduates to improve the health of our communities locally and globally.”  Importantly, the entry and selection requirements for both programs will also remain unchanged.  Find out more by browsing Medicine at Monash
