The medical school delivers an outcomes-focussed, clinically-guided curriculum that is complemented by clinical skills laboratory learning experiences, and the provision of community-based, clinical educational opportunities.
All senior students are required to undertake the year-long clinical training program integrated across community health services and hospitals, two-thirds of whom do so in a rural setting – a feature which is unique in Australia and done by only a handful of medical schools worldwide
We provide outstanding financial and pastoral support to students throughout the four years of the program
We are working to increase the number of Indigenous students, with four due to complete the course in 2017. UOW offers an alternative entry pathway for Indigenous applicants and dedication of three Commonwealth supported places annually to Indigenous students.
Provide a strengthened medical education linkage from the UOW School of Medicine based in Wollongong to the rural and regional hubs
Our commitment to rural medical education reaches across NSW, including a dedicated rural research plan
