The Flinders University Doctor of Medicine  program aims to develop the elements of knowledge, understanding and skill central to varied areas of medical practice, producing graduates well prepared to act as hospital interns and with the potential to follow a full range of medical specialties in subsequent training.

Flinders has a strong profile in medicine both nationally and internationally, and continues to be at the forefront of innovation in teaching and research. We provide rich and innovative student clinical placements and are leaders in the field of rural and remote health.

Your career

Upon graduation, you must complete a year as a hospital intern to qualify for medical registration with the Medical Board of Australia. After internship and a possible further year in a training position, you can then apply to undertake specialist training with a medical college. In addition to clinical practice in a wide range of medical specialties, medical graduates may work in research, public health or community aid around the world, or in health administration.

Potential occupations after internship include:

  • general practitioner
  • hospital medical officer
