Undergraduate- versus Graduate-entry Medical Programs

Undergraduate Entry: Rather than having to earn a bachelor degree first, undergraduate-entry medical programs allow students to enter directly from high school. If you have completed high school studies or would like to apply to a medical school in Australia without using your MCAT score, you may wish to learn more about undergraduate-entry medical programs offered by Australian universities.

JCU Medical School offers an undergraduate-entry program that specializes in rural, remote and indigenous medicine and is located in north Queensland, Australia.

Monash University Medical School’s undergraduate-entry program provides a great pathway for students who are looking to gain entry into medical school directly from high school.

Graduate Entry: Some Australian medical schools offer a graduate-entry medical program where you first have to complete an undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science, in order to apply to a four-year medical program.

The following Australian medical schools offer a medical program at a graduate-entry level, which are similar to those medical programs offered in Canada and the United States:
  • Griffith University Medical School
  • Monash University Medical School
  • University of Melbourne Medical School
  • University of Queensland Medical School
  • University of Sydney Medical School
