Progressing to the Doctor of Medicine program

As a Provisional Entry student, you need to complete your first bachelor's degree at UQ before you start the Doctor of Medicine (MD) program. To progress to the MD program you’ll need to:  

  • achieve a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 5.0 (on a 7-point scale);
  • complete the degree within the minimum time; and
  • complete the required MD subject prerequisite courses.

We will conduct a progression check after finalisation of grades in Semester 1 and 2 of your final year, in addition to yearly checks throughout your undergraduate degree. The purpose of these progress checks is to confirm you:

  • are on track to satisfy the GPA requirement to progress to the MD program;
  • are on track to complete your undergraduate program in the minimum amount of time; and
  • have completed or enrolled in the required MD prerequisite courses.

It is important to note that these progress checks do not determine if you have met the program requirements for your undergraduate degree or have sufficient time to complete your subject pre-requisites. It is your responsibility to ensure you seek guidance and advice from the relevant faculty for your undergraduate program, to ensure you meet these requirements.
