Outline of Studies

PMC students take four Pre-Medicine units in addition to their primary degree at the University. The four units in the Pre-Medicine Certificate are selected from a menu of options suited to developing future health professionals such as social justice studies, Aboriginal studies, the sociology of health and medicine, behavioural science, psychology, and biological and physical sciences. Students will be counselled by their PMC mentor on their choice of elective units for the Certificate.

The PMC does not guarantee entry into Medicine; however, successful completion of the PMC guarantees students an interview for Medicine at Notre Dame.

Please note that The University of Notre Dame Australia’s “Certificate” courses are accredited under the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). While some of these courses may be used for articulation or credit against future study, undergraduate level Certificates issued by universities in Australia are not qualifications under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
