There are medical schools here in Canada, so why do so many Canadians consider studying at an Australian medical school? We could say that it’s because Australian medical schools offer high-quality education and clinical training in an amazing setting. That’s true! But it’s also because Australia and Canada share a similar medical system, a similar medical education, and similar medical issues.

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. Australian medical schools are some of the best of the best, with several of OzTREKK’s Australian university partners consistently ranked in the top 50 in the world. These are not second-rate institutions, so don’t be worried that you will get a mediocre education.
