Course Description

Medicine is an inspiring and challenging career choice that offers a unique ability to improve people’s health and wellbeing and to alleviate pain and suffering around the world.

At the University of Adelaide, students are trained to become doctors from their first day on campus. The Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery provides hands-on, practical experience in simulated settings and in the real world of clinical practice, creating highly skilled and confident graduates who are ready for the diverse range of careers available to them worldwide.

In the initial years of the degree, students learn from senior clinicians in the new state-of-the-art Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building and work in small groups to solve patient-centred problems relating to health and disease. High-tech simulation facilities allow students to practise and develop their skills in a safe and supported environment before they undertake clinical placements in hospitals and other health and medical organisations from third year onwards.

After successfully completing a 12 month internship in an approved hospital and obtaining general registration to practise, graduates can choose to specialise in a variety of areas. After acceptance into a postgraduate training program, graduates can undertake further vocational study or training. Adelaide Medical School graduates are well regarded in the industry for their knowledge and experience, and are in-demand for positions in public hospitals, private practice, public health, teaching, clinical research, aid organisations, the defence forces and more.
