Wednesday 17 April 2024

The Macquarie MD is distinct among medical degrees. Taught on a campus that’s home to MQ Health – Australia’s first university-led integrated academic health sciences centre – and the country’s only not-for-profit hospital on a university campus, the degree will uniquely prepare you to be a patient-centred, culturally responsive and globally aware future healthcare leader.

To find out more, join us either in person or online for our Macquarie MD Information Evening on Wednesday 17 April 2024. You’ll learn about the degree’s structure, placement opportunities, our state-of-the-art facilities and the admission process.

The Macquarie MD is a four-year graduate-entry medical course that integrates applied medical sciences with clinical sciences, professionalism and research. You’ll study within MQ Health – Australia’s first university-led fully integrated academic health sciences centre.

You’ll learn to be patient-centred and safety focused, culturally responsive, globally aware and equipped to work within increasingly digital health systems. From day one, you’ll engage in clinical learning and be part of a small and highly supported student community, and experience structured Australian and international clinical placements.
