Why Australia?
Since there are medical schools here in Canada, you might be wondering why so many Canadians consider Australia. Studying medicine in Australia is a great experience and helps students appreciate the worldwide aspect of health, since many clinical placements are offered around the globe.

Yes, Australian medical schools offer high-quality education and clinical training in an amazing setting, but did you know that Australia and Canada share a similar medical system, a similar medical education, and similar medical issues? It’s one of the reasons Australia is such a popular choice for Canadians.

Residency Matching
We can’t forget to mention that Australian medical graduates successfully match into post-graduate training programs in Canada, Australia, and the US.

We know that an international medical education means you have questions about what happens after you graduate. Each year, we host several medical licensing webinars for students who have submitted their med school application via our office. These sessions provide the latest information regarding the accreditation and medical licensing processes in Canada and the United States, as well as outline options for internships in Australia—an option that a growing number of students choose.

Graduate and Undergraduate Pathways
Depending on your educational background, you may be eligible to apply to graduate-entry MD programs (require a degree and the MCAT in most cases) or undergraduate-entry programs (for students directly from high school or in some cases, with a partially completed degree).

Another great reason to study in Australia is because of their incredible world rankings. Australian medical schools are some of the best, with several of OzTREKK’s Australian universities 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.
