We support the Commonwealth and Northern Territory Governments’ key priority to increase the participation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people in medicine.
We are committed to equity and inclusiveness in the Doctor of Medicine. Flinders recognises and values the contribution that Indigenous knowledge and Indigenous doctors make to the health of our country. Our Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff teach you how to work safely and confidently in a multicultural society.
As an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander applicant you can choose from two pathways into the Doctor of Medicine.
If you have an undergraduate degree but do not have a valid GAMSAT score, you can apply for entry into the Indigenous Entry Stream (IES). Alternatively, if you do have a valid GAMSAT score you can apply for direct entry through the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Sub-quota.
Both pathways have different timelines and requirements.
Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander applicants may confirm their Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander identity in one of two ways:
Confirmation of Indigeneity - provide a formal document, confirming their Indigeneity, from an incorporated Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander organisation, containing the Common Seal of the organisation.
Affirmation of Indigeneity - when a document under Common Seal is not able to be obtained, applicants may submit an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent Statutory Declaration.
