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 into an Indigenous Sub Quota place.
There is no minimum GPA requirement for entry to the MD through the IES, however, strong academic performance in the bachelor degree is an important indicator of the intellectual abilities necessary for success in the MD, and an overall GPA of 5.50 in this degree is considered a competitive minimum.
Both pathways have different timelines and requirements. Please be aware that late applications are not accepted in either pathway.
