Sydney Medical School

Faculty of Medicine

Overview

The Sydney Medical School aims to educate and train students to become excellent clinicians and to prepare them for a lifetime of learning – essential in providing the best care for patients over a long career.

After finishing the four year Doctor of Medicine (MD) or the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, students must complete a one year internship in a medical environment as a junior doctor. After this period, a student can apply to the relevant state medical board to achieve full registration. They can then do further medical training in order to specialise in paediatrics, oncology, cosmetic, cardiac and general practice amongst other areas of medicine.
