Highlights

  • This program is highly challenging but extremely rewarding. It will equip students with the medical, clinical and research skills for pursuing a vocation in any field of medicine
  • The MBChB is a six-year programme including Year One (Part I) of the Bachelor of Health Sciences or the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science
  • In Year One (Part I) one 15-point course is required from the General Education Schedule approved for this degree. In Year Two (Part II) you are required to complete a core course that focuses on the basic medical and health sciences while being introduced to professional and clinical aspects of medical practice
  • Those who complete the Medical Programme are eligible to apply for provisional registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand. They 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
