Medicine offers a lifetime of opportunities with a large variety of career options, both nationally and internationally. Rural Australia depends upon people who live and work outside the city and suburbs, and there are pathways designed for students with an interest in rural practice. Whether a student wants to become a general practitioner or a general surgeon, the University of Adelaide Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) program will qualify students to pursue these specialties, and many others, after graduation. The progression of medical knowledge depends upon research, and the University of Adelaide can assist students whose interests lie in becoming a clinical researcher. The University of Adelaide Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery program is designed to teach the art and craft of medicine to help students achieve their specific goals.

University of Adelaide Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery Overview

The University of Adelaide Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery program is centred around the core elements of medical practice. These include ethical practice, patient and peer communication, clinical science, professionalism, teamwork, clinical skills, population health and preventative medicine.

Case-based, small-group learning (CBL) is the dominant learning mode during the early years of the MBBS curriculum. Learning is structured around clinical cases of the most common and important diseases. Lectures in the medical disciplines such as pathology, anatomy, physiology and pharmacology are carefully staged throughout the CBL cases. In Year 1, MBBS students will also undertake two semesters of Fundamentals of Biomedical Science, and in Year 2, one semester of medical microbiology and immunology.

Because of the strong emphasis on professionalism, ethical practice and communication with patients and peers, MBBS students are introduced to medical professional and personal development in Year 1. This emphasis continues throughout all years of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery program.

Throughout Years 4-6 MBBS students undertake core and elective clinical placements in teaching hospitals and community practice in both urban and rural locations. To further assist in preparing students for clinical attachments in Years 4-6, clinical practice tutorials in Years 1 and 2 are led by senior clinicians in a state-of-the-art clinical skills facility. In Year 3, clinical skills training is conducted primarily in the public teaching hospitals. The Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at the University of Adelaide provides invaluable preparation for the clinical attachments in Years 4-6.
