The Flinders Medical School was the first in Australia to develop a 4 year graduate-entry Medical program as an alternative to traditional 5-6 year courses for school leavers. This was an opportunity to rethink curriculum design and the way in which students are selected. Now about 17 years later, the majority of Medical School places in Australia are graduate-entry and as the Australian Medical Council noted in renewing the Flinders Medical School's accreditation recently: "The curriculum is nationally and internationally recognised and has been adopted by other schools in Australia".
"Tradition" at Flinders involves building on the strengths of our widely-adopted curriculum via continued review and innovation to create or capture the best new ideas in medical education. Why study at Flinders?
