Following the internship year, most doctors complete another year of hospital service before commencing postgraduate training programs. Entry to the various specialisations requires postgraduate study, experience in approved hospitals and the passing of examinations leading to membership of the appropriate professional college.

Pathways

Flinders University offers an undergraduate pathway through a Clinical Sciences stream in the Bachelor of Medical Science. You will undertake the first two years of an undergraduate degree and by maintaining a GPA of at least 5, you will be guaranteed entry to the Doctor of Medicine. On completion, graduates are awarded with a Doctor of Medicine.

Our Doctor of Medicine is an integrated program that provides an alternative to the traditional pathway from secondary school to an undergraduate medical course. Students graduate with a Doctor of Medicine that is comparable to the 6 year MBBS programs for school leavers and is recognised by the World Health Organisation.

Where can our graduates go?

Doctors must complete a year as a paid hospital intern before qualifying for full medical registration in Australia. Medical practitioners can work in diverse areas including Public Health, Community Health Centres, Private Practice, Universities and Government Departments.
