Flinders University in partnership with Charles Darwin University (CDU) offers a double degree in Bachelor of Clinical Sciences/Doctor of Medicine. The Bachelor of Clinical Sciences (BClinSci) offered at Charles Darwin University provides a two-year pathway into Flinders University’s Doctor of Medicine program. The BClinSci is a jointly delivered and awarded degree of Flinders and CDU and is part of a double degree that includes the Flinders NT MD.
Students will complete this in six years straight from high school. This double degree program had its first intake at Charles Darwin University in 2011. These students commenced in the MD (NTMP) in 2013. Students who successfully complete the double degree requirements will be awarded a Bachelor of Clinical Sciences (by CDU and Flinders) and an MD (by Flinders).
There are 12 places available in the Bachelor of Clinical Science. Additionally, out of the 12 places for the BClinSci students, there is a subquota of up to seven places for Indigenous students.
The degree is open to school leavers or applicants with less than 12 months university study with five places available for NT Indigenous student residents and two places for Indigenous students nationally.
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).
Applicants need to sit the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admissions Test (UMAT) and achieve an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of at least 90. You will need to apply through SATAC. Students from NT schools will receive up to six point bonus.
To progress to the Flinders MD Program you will need to maintain a credit average throughout the Bachelor course.
