Becoming a doctor or a dentist

The Doctor of Medicine and the Doctor of Dental Medicine are graduate entry courses. This means you must complete a bachelor's degree before commencing your medicine studies. You can enrol straight from high school into a combined degree medicine program as listed above, however entry into these programs is extremely competitive.

The majority of students undertake an undergraduate degree first and then apply for either of the below graduate courses.
