Studying the BMed with the JMP is a great opportunity to study a program of international standing offering early and clinical experience.

The JMP offers the Bachelor of Medicine program in partnership with the University of Newcastle, University of New England, Hunter New England and Central Coast Local Health Districts.

This degree has been developed in close consultation with doctors, health care providers, graduates and current students to ensure it is relevant and responsive to the rapidly changing health environment

With a strong focus on experiential learning throughout the degree, students will utilise state-of-the-art educational technology including simulated learning environments. Clinical exposure through placements takes place throughout the program and ensures students are continually putting into practice the theory and hands-on skills they learn in lectures and tutorials.

The JMP is committed to addressing the doctor shortage in rural and remote Australia and as such will actively recruit students interested in practising rural medicine.
