For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants, the Miroma Bunbilla Program is a pre-entry pathway to the Joint Medical Program (JMP).
The Miroma Bunbilla program is a five-day intensive assessment, coordinated by the University’s Thurru Indigenous Health Unit. It will be delivered from December 5 to 9 2022, pairing students with mentors to successfully start medical school. The program extends beyond Newcastle to reach those outside the Hunter region and now also runs in Armidale, Moree, Tamworth, Taree and Orange.
Applicants who apply through this pathway do not need to sit the UCAT to be eligible for entry into the JMP.
Participants are required to attend all scheduled sessions within the 5 day Miroma Bunbilla Program. Should you miss any scheduled activity you will not qualify to be considered for entry to the JMP through this pathway.
Prior to applying to the Miroma Bunbilla program, you will need to apply to the JMP through UAC before 30 September 2022.
Applications to Miroma Bunbilla close 31 October 2022.
