This is an accelerated degree, with guaranteed entry into the Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery at Flinders University in students’ third year of study. The third year of the Bachelor of Clinical Studies is also the first year of the Medicine/Surgery degree, meaning students graduate with Clinical Studies while continuing studying at Flinders University.

Students will study core units that focus on areas such as Chemical Concepts, Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Biological Studies, Biochemistry and Doctor, the Profession and Society.

Students will then go on to choose a specialist elective, available from the following areas: Pharmacy; Medical Laboratory Science; or Exercise and Sport Science. This gives students an opportunity to study what they’re really interested in, from a range of different areas.
