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!
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.

Undergraduate- versus Graduate-entry Medical Programs
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.
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.
