Indigenous entry pathway

A new pathway was developed in 2015 and will be implemented for the first time in 2016. The Indigenous pathway offer will be initiated automatically once you identify on your QTAC application form that you are of Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander decent.

Course Information

In 2016 Bond University is proposing to transition the existing Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree to a Bachelor of Medical Studies/ Doctor of Medicine Program as the primary qualifications, which will be awarded to graduates of the medical program. This plan remains subject to approval by the Board of Directors of the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and the Medical Board of Australia. The University anticipates that they will be able to inform prospective applicants the outcome of this approval process prior to the opening of QTAC application for the 2016 Medicine program in January, 2016.

The MD will be an accredited, fully integrated evidence-based course offering direct entry to both Year 12 school leavers and other university graduates. It will be a double degree program with the first 8 semesters at Bachelor Degree level and the following 6 semesters at Master’s Degree level. Those who successfully complete the program will receive a Bachelor of Medical Studies and a Doctor of Medicine Degree.

The MD program will be distinguished by its strong educational focus on problem based learning in the first 5 semesters, which is followed in Year 3 by a virtual clinical year where students are immersed in Bond Virtual Hospital that is supplemented by real patient contact every week. In Years 4 and 5 students will be immersed in the workplace and have the opportunity to complete a project or undertake a capstone clinical experience that can include exciting international clinical placements.

Entry Level: Undergraduate

Entry level will remain at undergraduate level. Most students go from year 12, but you can also apply as a mature age student, or have done an enabling course or previous study at TAFE. You can also do an undergraduate course if you have already done a degree, but in a different field.
