Overview

Years 1-3 of the Medicine and Surgery from University of Tasmania  are based in Hobart at the Medical Science Precinct, with short placements in rural communities around the State. 

In Years 4 and 5, students have the opportunity to complete their degree at the Hobart Clinical School, the Launceston Clinical School or the Rural Clinical School in Burnie. Years 4 and 5 will involve a series of clinical rotations, including some electives.

Career 

Once you've completed the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery, you'll be eligible for provisional registration to work in approved hospitals whilst undertaking training as an intern for one year.

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.

Graduates can then choose to specialise in one of a number of fields such as general practice, anaesthesia, dermatology, obstetrics and gynaecology, geriatric medicine, paediatrics, pathology, psychiatry, radiology or surgery.

Graduates may also become medical administrators in hospitals or government departments, or medical academics involved with teaching and medical research.
