Applicants who meet GPA and Admissions Test requirements will be invited to interview.  All international applicants selected for interview, including those already in Sydney, will be interviewed via an online link using Skype.

The MMI process is designed to assess suitability based on qualities important for success in the MD and DMD, including: – good communication skills; – a sense of caring, empathy and sensitivity; – an ability to make effective decisions; – an ability to contribute as a member of a team; – an appreciation of the place of medicine in the wider context of healing; and – a sense of vocation, motivation and commitment within the context of medicine. The MMI process aims to broadly sample the candidate’s competencies in order to gain an accurate picture of the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses. This is achieved by having several brief interviews with different interviewers.

The University of Sydney’s Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program is fully accredited by the Australian Dental Council.

Graduates from The University of Sydney’s Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program will be fully qualified to practice dentistry upon completion of the degree, as well as being eligible to sit for the Dental Examining Board of Canada (DEB) examination to practice as a Dentist (in Canada).

In 2010, the Australian Dental Council and the Commission on Dental accreditation of Canada signed a reciprocal agreement which allows accredited graduates of either body to practice Dentistry in Australia or Canada. This means Canadian students returning home with dentistry degrees from accredited Australian Dental Schools can follow the same licensing process as Canadian domestic graduates. Canadian license will be fully granted upon successful completion of the National Exam administered through the Canadian National Dental Examining Board (NDEB)
