Flinders Provisional Medicine General Discussion

Is it easier to sustain a higher GPA in one pathway than the other? And did you enjoy medical science specific core subjects?
Generally you’ll achieve more highly when you’re studying something you enjoy / are interested in, so just pick whatever one interests you more. I can’t see there being a significant difference in GPA between the two degrees and there will likely be a fair amount of overlap anyway.

As said, there is a lot of overlap between the two, so do which one you think you will enjoy more - there shouldn't be a huge difference in difficulty and maintaining the GPA needed isn't hard at all. The first semester core subject, MDSC Skills for Medical Scientists, was definitely a lot more stimulating and enjoyable than the one in second semester. You learn a lot of invaluable skills from MDSC that will help you with your other topics.

Hi, if this isn't supposed to be here or it's already asked, sorry. I was just curious as to how it all works with Flinder's med. After you finish the 6 years you have to do one year internship right? So what exactly do you finish with? In my knowledge you can work as a GP, or Intern. So how about specialising in a certain branch of medicine or surgery or something? Also, I've heard you can do placements internationally, how does that work?

At the end of the 6 years you have a Bachelor degree and an MD. In order to obtain your general registration, you have to successfully complete an internship. This isn’t unique to Flinders, it’s the same for all Med unis in Australia.

Your knowledge re. “GP or intern” seems incorrect and you should have a look at the pathways to GP specialisation in Aus.

Most universities offer an elective opportunity at some stage that can be completed overseas. Again, this isn’t unique to Flinders.

It seems you probably need to do some google searching and reading up on the different components, requirements, and pathways (both of the Flinders degree and of medicine more generally).

Are you a year 12 student hoping to apply to Flinders for 2021 entry?

Oh ok, I'll have a bit more of a look around. I'm in year 11 at the moment. Thank you

Hi guys
If I stuff up my ucat (get a score around 85%) but somehow manage to get 99.95, would Flinders med still accept me?
Yeah probs, although it may not be a first-round offer.
