Australian medical school rankings 2018

There are medical schools here in Canada, so why do so many Canadians consider studying at an Australian medical school? Because Australia and Canada share a similar medical system, a similar medical education, and similar medical issues!

Study medicine in Australia!

Australian medical schools offer high-quality education and clinical training in an amazing setting! Studying medicine in Australia is a great experience and really helps students appreciate the worldwide aspect of health, since many clinical placements are offered around the globe.

Another great reason to study in Australia is because of their incredible world rankings. Australian medical schools are world-ranking, with four of OzTREKK’s university partners in the top 50 in the world. These are not second-rate institutions, so don’t be worried that you will get a mediocre education.

The QS World University Rankings has recently released its 2018 rankings by subject, and here are the basics regarding how our Australian medical schools stacked up:

Undergraduate- versus Graduate-entry Medical Programs

Undergraduate Entry

Are you just finishing high school? Undergraduate medical programs are for you! Rather than having to earn a bachelor degree first, undergraduate-entry medical programs allow students to enter directly from high school. If you have completed high school studies or would like to apply to a medical school in Australia without using your MCAT score, you may wish to learn more about undergraduate-entry medical programs offered by Australian universities.

Graduate Entry

Some Australian medical schools offer a graduate-entry medical program where you first have to complete an undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science, in order to apply to a four-year medical program. The following Australian medical schools offer programs at a graduate-entry level, which are similar to medical programs offered in Canada and the United States:

Monash University collaborates to improve general practice

A new collaboration between Monash University and the Inner East Melbourne Medicare Local (IEMML) will provide a unique window into the patterns of general practice in Australia.

The Melbourne East MonAsh GeNeral PracticE DaTabase (MAGNET) unites the research strengths of the University with extracted health care data of close to one million patients attending general practices in the IEMML region. MAGNET will be officially launched next week in Melbourne following Monash University’s Department of General Practice Research Showcase Day.

The database, which protects the identities of patients, will provide information about patient and GP demographics, risk factors, diagnoses, medications prescribed, pathology results, antenatal care, and practice characteristics.

Scientific director of MAGNET, Professor Danielle Mazza, dead of Monash University’s Department of General Practice, said the database provides a unique view of Australian general practice and offers opportunities to undertake research to inform policy and practice.

“Not only does MAGNET provide a rich data-set of medical records contextualized in the practice setting, but it provides the perfect platform for longitudinal studies and the rapid evaluation of policy initiatives,” Professor Mazza said.

The Department of General Practice Research Showcase Day, to be held prior to the MAGNET launch, will provide an overview of the research being undertaken within the department. Projects centred on women’s and children’s health, chronic disease, medical education, and research translation will be on display.

Professor Mazza said the importance of general practice and primary care to the health of Australians cannot be overstated.

“Statistics show that more than 14.5 million Australians aged 15 and over see a GP every year, with more than 80 percent visiting more than once. The research undertaken in our department is geared towards improving this vital aspect of health care for the benefit of the wider community,” Professor Mazza said.

About Monash University’s Department of General Practice

Like the Monash Medical School, the Department of General Practice (DGP) is part of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. It was established in 1975 and is one of the largest general practice teaching departments in Australia with more than 30 full-time equivalent academic, research and professional staff. It was incorporated into the newly formed School of Primary Health Care within the faculty in 2001.

The department is involved in three principle areas: teaching in the undergraduate medical curriculum, postgraduate studies and general practice and primary care research.

Monash’s Department of General Practice teaches undergraduate medical students in four of the five years of the undergraduate curriculum. They are involved in teaching clinical skills, health promotion and general practice and primary care. The latter involves small group teaching and clinical placements.

OzTREKK Funny Friday

This guy goes into a doctor’s office. The doctor says, “Oh, Mr. Jones! We have the results of your test. Do you want the bad news first or the very bad news?”

The guy shrugs and says, “Well I guess I’ll have the bad news first.”

“Well the bad news is, you have twenty-four hours to live,” the doctor replies.

The man is distraught, “Twenty-four hours to live? That’s horrible! What could be worse than that? What’s the VERY bad news?”

The doctor folds his hands and sighs. “The very bad news is…I’ve been trying to contact you since yesterday.”
