The Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Medical) provides a pathway into the graduate entry Doctor of Medicine offered by the University of Melbourne in Shepparton for regional students intending to practice medicine in a regional location.
La Trobe has made some changes to the degree to make entry less stressful for Year 12 students. Some of the changes include:
- The raw minimum ATAR for this course has been lowered from 85 to 80.
- The weighted average mark (WAM) that students need to secure a place in the University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Medicine Rural Pathway, has been reduced from 75 to 70.
- Multiple mini interviews (MMI) are conducted as part of the course selection process.
- The course is now included in the Regional Benefits Scholarship program.
- The course is now part of the Aspire Early Admissions Program. Note that although it is included, it only guarantees a place at the MMI in January.
