The Doctor of Medicine (MD) is a four year professional postgraduate medical degree offering you clinical experience at leading hospitals, research opportunities at world-leading institutes, and established elective placements throughout Europe, Africa, North America and Asia. Our course will provide you with current best practice in medical education, high teacher-student ratios and extensive scholarship support. You will graduate as a medical practitioner who is responsive to the health needs of individuals, families and communities and committed to improving the health care system at all levels. Our students come from a range of backgrounds and academic disciplines.
The MD program comprises 4 broad themes that run through all four years of the course. These themes are: Basic and Clinical Sciences, Patient and Doctor, Population Medicine, and Personal and Professional Development.
In Years 1 and 2, students work through a number of Blocks that cover all body systems from both basic science and clinical perspectives, with an emphasis on understanding the scientific foundations of clinical reasoning and clinical practice.
In Stage 3 (Years 3 and 4 of the program), students cover all major aspects of clinical medicine.
Research methodology is introduced in year 1 of the program. Students gain experience with developing and managing a research project under supervision. The project culminates in a written report or an article suitable for publication.
Years 1 & 2 are spent primarily on the main university campus at Camperdown, but clinical training commences in the first weeks of the program. For years 3 & 4, students are based in their clinical school. Clinical learning occurs at multiple widely-dispersed sites (hospitals and community, metropolitan, urban and rural).
