The vision, mission and values of the program are:
The program is committed to producing graduates who can collaborate and are work ready for modern team-based healthcare. It is expected that students will participate along with all other health care professionals in nursing, dentistry, allied health and pharmacy in one of several interprofessional learning activities.
On graduation students will be expected to demonstrate that they are compassionate and innovative lifelong learner, who can work in partnership with individuals and communities to improve health through clinical care, education and research.
In order to achieve this goal, the curriculum is built around eight vertical themes which describe major areas of capability.
In this course teaching and learning takes place in accordance with the University’s approved semesters and teaching blocks, and as set out in the 2024 Sydney Medical School Academic Calendar, approved by Academic Board [to be published in late November 2023].
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) in partnership with the Medical Council of New South Wales, implements the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009 (known as 'the National Law'). This applies to graduates of medical schools in NSW.
All medical students enrolled in Australian medical schools are registered with the Medical Board of Australia in accordance with processes of the AHPRA. Information about student registration can be found on the Medical Board Student Registration website.
AHPRA has developed guidelines under the National Law that provide direction to education providers, about the requirements for mandatory notifications of individual students. Students should make themselves familiar with the Guidelines for Mandatory Notifications on the Medical Board of Australia website. More information about reporting requirements can be found on the Medical Board Student Registration website.
