The Bachelor of Clinical Sciences (BCSC) provides students with a solid foundation in the fundamental, health and medical-related sciences to enable students to successfully complete the Flinders Doctor of Medicine (MD).
Completion of the first year of the Flinders MD, which is also the third and final year of the BCSC, will qualify students to graduate with a Bachelor of Clinical Sciences.
This course is part of a double degree with the Doctor of Medicine through Flinders University and as such has been accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) as an entry pathway into medicine.
Applicants need to sit the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admissions Test (UMAT) and achieve an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of at least 90.
