Please ensure that you provide a current email address and phone number in your application.
After reviewing the applications, we may invite you to attend an interview to determine your suitability for the course.
Interviews can be face to face or by videoconference, and are conducted by a panel of representatives from the School of Medicine and the NIKERI Institute. The Australian Indigenous Doctors Association also sits on the panel for the Doctor of Medicine.
Invitations to interview will be made based on a combination of educational experience and completed application forms. GPA scores will be considered for the Doctor of Medicine.
As additional evidence of suitability, the interview panel may ask some applicants to complete a number of mini interviews and/or a written reflection.
One of our key visions is social accountability, and we aim to provide opportunities for students to join us from all walks of life to learn to become excellent doctors.
