Course Structure

This course allows you to start your medical studies from day one and equips you with the knowledge, skills and attributes to begin your career as a medical practitioner. Monash deliver a world-class education by drawing on Monash's world-leading expertise in medical practice and research, and the Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine and Health Sciences' particular strengths in the cardiometabolic field, infection and immunity, global public health and neuroscience. With a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to medical training, this course is equivalent to that offered at Monash's Australian campus. The selection criteria, learning objectives and assessments are identical. The Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (BMedSci/MD) is a truly international degree that comes with the opportunity to study at one of the world's top medical schools and graduate with a qualification to practise medicine in Malaysia, Australia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
