Admission Information

The Northern Territory Medical Program (NTMP)

Flinders University offers the Flinders Doctor of Medicine (MD) in the NT through the NT Medical Program.  Whether you are a school leaver or university graduate in the Territory, the NTMP allows you to undergo your entire medical training in the Northern Territory.

The Flinders MD recognises and values the contribution that Indigenous knowledge and Indigenous doctors make to the health of our country.  Our Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff will lead you to a greater understanding of this heritage and teach you how to work safely and confidently in a multicultural society.

Flinders University has a strong commitment to building the rural and remote health workforce by delivering innovative clinical placements. Medical students in the NT can undertake an entire year or more of study in a remote area and achieve excellent academic results.

Entry to the Program

Graduate Entry

12 graduate-entry places are available each year at the Northern Territory Medical Program.

These places are sponsored by the Northern Territory Government. Preference is given to students who are Northern Territory residents and particularly to Indigenous Territorians. Other Australians may apply and will be considered in the event that there are insufficient numbers of eligible Northern Territorians and/or Indigenous applicants.

From 2016, these places are associated with a four year Return of Service Obligation (ROSO) in the Northern Territory after graduation.

Please refer to the admission requirements (graduate entry).

Indigenous Applicants Entry: Indigenous Entry Stream

Year 12 Entry: Flinders/CDU Double Degree

If you have completed Year 12 and wish to study medicine, you can apply for a double degree pathway which enables you to enter the Doctor of Medicine (MD) without having to complete a seperate undergraduate degree first.  Through this pathway you can complete a Bachelor of Clinical Science combined with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) in six years.  If successful in your application, you will undertake full-time internal studies for two years in a Bachelor of Clinical Sciences based at Charles Darwin University.  After successful completion of the first two years, you will then undertake the four-year MD program, based in the Northern Territory. For more information visit the Bachelor of Clinical Sciences website.
