Bachelor of Economics / Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery

Seven years full-time

This unique seven-year (full-time) program will provide you with the opportunity to pursue studies that are of particular relevance to the management and conduct of business, in addition to gaining a professional qualification in medicine.

The skills you will acquire through the Bachelor of Economics will benefit a number of careers in the medical profession. For example, doctors in private practice need to understand the fundamentals of business in order to establish and maintain a thriving practice.

Meanwhile, doctors in supervisory roles, such as hospital chief executives, require the management skills to successfully coordinate staff, budgets and other administrative duties.

This course is available only to 2013 Year 12 applicants, and international applicants who have achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of at least 99.95.

Please note:

Sydney Medical School is proposing to change from awarding MBBS to MD or Doctor of Medicine. The change to MD has not yet been finalised - it requires approval from the University of Sydney Academic Board and from the Australian Medical Council. However, it is likely that students coming into the combined program in 2014 will undertake the MD once they have completed the initial Bachelor degree.

The primary change between the MD and MBBS programs will be the inclusion of compulsory research methods training and the completion of a research or other major project. Curriculum, clinical training and assessment will remain broadly the same. Central features of Sydney’s program, including the integration of clinical learning and teaching with basic sciences, population health concepts and the development of professionalism, will not be changed under the MD.

Information about the change will be posted on the website as soon as it is available.
