The Medicine and Surgery programme of The University of Auckland is highly challenging but extremely rewarding. It will equip you with the medical, clinical and research skills for pursuing a vocation in any field of medicine. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


Entry into the Medicine and Surgery programme of The University of Auckland  is limited and competitive. You will be selected on the basis of academic merit, University Clinical Aptitude Test for Australia and New Zealand (UCAT ANZ) performance and personal qualities exhibited during the admission interview (MMI). There are 257 domestic places available each year.


Those who complete the Medical Programme are eligible to apply for provisional registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. You might choose primary health care and work in general practice, or choose from a range of other specialist disciplines. 

Students interested in research may defer clinical MBChB studies after Part III and take a year pursuing a supervised research project of their choice to qualify for a BMedSc(Hons) degree before returning to complete their clinical training and graduating with both qualifications. 

We advise that the University of Auckland is not involved in the employment of graduates and can make no guarantee of post-qualification registration or employment in New Zealand or any other country.


Accredited by the Australian Medical Council on behalf of the Medical Council of New Zealand.
