As one of the world’s top 50 medical faculties and 5th in Australia (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018), UNSW Medicine is building the future of healthcare. Our leading educators, researchers and clinicians are translating discoveries into breakthrough cures, therapies and treatment strategies and turning high achieving students into caring healthcare professionals with globally recognised qualifications.

UNSW Medicine understands it takes ongoing innovation and open, bright minds to meet the formidable global, national and local challenges of ageing populations, increasingly complex medical treatments and stretched healthcare budgets. To continuously improve patient outcomes, UNSW Medicine is backing medical research in the long term, recalibrating the way medicine is taught, scrutinising modern healthcare delivery and realising the potential of new technologies. In addition, by prioritising social equity and inclusion, UNSW Medicine is ensuring the future delivery of relevant, insightful healthcare to poorly-served Indigenous and rural communities. 

UNSW Medicine’s unique undergraduate-entry MD (Bachelor of Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine) program combines excellence in medical education with exceptional opportunities for students. Students learn alongside renowned clinicians and researchers and have the opportunity to connect and collaborate across the classroom and across the world via UNSW’s world-leading interactive medical education technology. UNSW Medicine’s year-long Independent Learning Project is an Australian first, building the critical thinking and problem solving skills that give our graduates a competitive edge in forging high profile, globally mobile, clinical or research careers.
