Study

Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned professional, we have something to suit your needs and schedule. With the highest teaching evaluations in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences we are proud to offer our coursework and short course programs to our leaders and future leaders.

Clinical Schools

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) has been designed to train doctors who have the skills, attributes, passion and competency to make a positive and immediate contribution to health locally and internationally. Integral to your study is the teaching and clinical training you will experience at the University of Melbourne's clinical schools located in affiliated teaching hospitals.

Each of our clinical schools offers our students a unique experience, whilst delivering the same MD curriculum to provide a first-class medical education.

Zone Preferences

Applicants invited to a Multi Mini Interview (MMI) for a place in the Doctor of Medicine will be asked to identify their preference for a particular Clinical School region and whether they are interested in being selected to a particular rural cohort.

The information below should assist applicants in making these decisions.

During the first year of the MD, students are allocated to one of these clinical schools for the final three years of the course (with the exception of non-ERC Rural Clinical School students who may have the opportunity to be re-allocated after completion of Year 2). Acceptance of a place in the medical course indicates acceptance of a place in a particular clinical school zone, and subsequent clinical school placement.
