Bachelor of Medical Science, Doctor of Medicine
University of Tasmania's Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery had its last student intake in 2022. As of 2023 the university will be offering a Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine course instead. The course will have the same 5-year duration as the old course, but will provide an AQF Level 9 qualification instead of an AQF Level 7 qualification.
More details can be found on this information sheet. You can request more information on the change from MedicineAdmissions@utas.edu.au.
Bachelor of Medical Science / Doctor of Medicine at the University of Tasmania is a 5-year degree program.

On successful completion of your internship you can gain full registration to work in Australia and New Zealand and can choose, if you wish, to study in an area of specialisation, whilst continuing to work.
