About this course

The Doctor of Medicine and Surgery, Medicinae ac Chirurgiae Doctoranda, (MChD) is an AQF Level 9 Extended qualification, leading to pre-registration as a junior doctor. It aims to produce graduates who are committed to compassionate, ethical health care and the expansion of medical knowledge. The MChD is underpinned by four themes. Medical sciences covers a vast scope of ever changing and expanding knowledge that forms the basis of modern medicine.
