Bachelor of Medical Research

Medical Research at Western

This course gives students who are enrolled in the Western Sydney University Doctor of Medicine (MD) the opportunity to take leave of absence from the normal medical course for 12 months full time or 24 months part time, after successfully completing years 1 and 2 of MD, in order to gain a more detailed experience in medical research than is provided in the normal medical course.

Years 1 and 2 of the Bachelor of Medical Research are identical to years 1 and 2 of MD. It is expected that students will return to the medical course on completion of the intercalated year, which will complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Medical Research, but the degree is also available as an exit point for those who do not wish to resume MD.
