Where to Study

There are currently 18 medical schools spread across the vast land that is Australia, each with their own personal flavour. There is variety in;
  • course structure and approaches to medicine, 
  • university and clinical settings
  • the lifestyle associated with the area
    and much more.....
With so much diversity it's worth taking the time to really consider all options; weigh the pros and cons, as once you select your medical school it's virtually impossible to move elsewhere.

This is a very brief overview of the medical schools within Australia. Click on the Hospital Icons to get further information regarding a particular school. I've provided links to some further resources, but it is always best to research the schools you are considering applying to independently. The information proivded here is a guide only and some aspects may have changed since the time of writing.
