Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) is the most common method of entry into Medicine. HSFY is a competitive full-year programme undertaken on the Dunedin campus.
Early Learning in Medicine (ELM) takes place in years 2 and 3 in Dunedin. ELM is structured around a high-contact timetable.
Advanced Learning in Medicine (ALM) is the clinical component of the degree, and takes place over the final three years. For ALM, the class is divided into thirds, with one third studying in Christchurch, one third remaining in Dunedin, and one third studying in Wellington. In ALM, learning reflects the clinical exposure each student experiences.
Students also have opportunities to choose research projects and specific aspects of community-based clinical immersion learning.
Although designed to include a diverse and comprehensive experience, the medical programme prescribes the overall structure and paper choice for its students. All students have some choices within the programme, and a range of opportunities to extend those choices.
The MB ChB programme is governed by University-approved regulations, and policies and guidelines developed at programme level.
