The Bachelor of Clinical Sciences/Doctor of Medicine is only available to school leavers. Applicants must have completed year 12 (or equivalent) and must not have a record of study at higher education level.

Successful applicants to the Bachelor of Clinical Sciences/Doctor of Medicine will be guaranteed Flinders University housing on site at the Flinders campus.

Bachelor of Clinical Sciences Course overview

If you have completed Year 12 and wish to study medicine, Flinders University now offers you a unique pathway. The Bachelor of Clinical Sciences enables you to enter the university’s internationally renowned medical course without having to complete a separate undergraduate degree first. Through this pathway you can complete a Bachelor of Clinical Sciences combined with the Doctor of Medicine in six years.

In the first two years, you will undertake studies in Clinical Sciences with either a Medical Science or Health Sciences focus. These studies provide the preparation for entry to the four year Doctor of Medicine component.

Subject to passing all topics in these first two years and gaining a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5 (Credit average) you will then undertake the four-year graduate-entry medical program, the Doctor of Medicine (MD).

Medicine at Flinders University

The Flinders Medical School was the first in Australia to develop a 4 year graduate entry medical program in 1996 as an alternative to traditional 5-6 year MBBS courses for school leavers. This was an opportunity to rethink curriculum design and the way in which medical students are selected. Now the majority of Medical School places in Australia are graduate-entry, and Flinders University graduate entry medical school has been renamed a Doctor of Medicine (MD). Flinders University has also subsequently reintroduced an undergraduate pathway for a small number of the best performing secondary school leavers through its double degree, the Bachelor of Clinical Sciences / Doctor of Medicine.

“Tradition” at Flinders University Medical School involves building on the strengths of our widely-adopted curriculum via continued review and innovation to create or capture the best new ideas in medical education.
