Our undergraduate BMed MD program produces students who are skilled, professional and innovative clinicians and our Exercise Physiology program produces graduates that play a vital role in the prevention and management of chronic disease and injury.
Our undergraduate Medicine program is an integrated, outcome-based which aims to graduate life-long learners with a high degree of professionalism. The program – which incorporates hands-on learning in wards from year one – reflects the changing patterns of health and disease, changing community expectation in medical practice and the huge expansion of knowledge in biomedical and social sciences, and information technology.
Our Exercise Physiology program is the only one in Australia to be delivered within a medicine faculty; this allows our students to benefit from expert training in the medical sciences and clinical practice. Our graduates play a vital role in the prevention and management of chronic disease and injury. They have rewarding careers in a number of clinical workplace environments including public and private hospitals, private practice, aged care facilities, mental health clinics, community exercise and physical activity programs, and workplace health and rehabilitation.
UNSW Medicine offers Clinical Clerkships (electives) via our clinical teaching hospitals to non-UNSW medical students. The Clerkship placement provides students the opportunity to further develop knowledge and skills in their selected discipline. Successful applicants will attend clinics, ward rounds and with permission, record the history and perform physical examinations of patients in the wards. If the clerkship placement is during a medicine teaching period, lectures and tutorials in the clinical school may also be available.
