Course Information

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 before transitioning into the Doctor of Medicine (MD) in Year 3.

Entry Level: School leaver provisional

School leaver provisional entry pathways are offered by universities that have graduate-entry medical courses. They guarantee school leavers a place in the graduate entry medical program on the condition that they first complete a bachelor level degree course at the university and meet specified conditions (such as maintaining a particular grade point average and finishing the degree in the normal minimum time period).
