There are a lot things that can make a medicine program special: faculty, other students, facilities… but probably one of the most important features of any program are the opportunities!

Macquarie University has the newest medical school in Australia. It also has the first university-led integrated health campus in Australia. MQ Health integrates clinical care, teaching, and research to provide holistic patient treatment, discovery, and continuous learning.

In the third year of the Macquarie Doctor of Medicine, there is also an extended international clinical experience in Hyderabad, India with Apollo Hospitals Group—a pioneer in India’s private healthcare and the country’s first corporate hospital!

In the fourth year of the program, students have an additional 16 weeks of clinical placement.

Students have no shortage of hands-on opportunities!
