Bachelor of Medical Studies (BMedSt) and the Doctor of Medicine (MD)
Bond University - Gold Coast

Course outline

The Bond Medical Program comprises two sequential degrees: the Bachelor of Medical Studies (BMedSt) and the Doctor of Medicine (MD). All students have to complete both the BMedSt and MD to be eligible for registration as a medical practitioner in any state or territory in Australia or New Zealand. Both degrees are awarded at the completion of year 5. Learning and teaching in the BMedSt occurs in small group sessions comprised of interactive cases through problem-based learning, as well as clinical skills laboratories, simulation activities, community and clinical placements and a cultural immersion experience. This is followed, in the MD, by clinical rotations in hospital and community healthcare settings, as well as face-to-face teaching at timetabled education sessions. During this time, students undertake a research or professional project, or a capstone experience and prepare a portfolio of their work.
