As a student of the college, you’ll graduate
as a leader and innovator with the skills, commitment and vision to protect vulnerable communities and advance health outcomes.
At the College of Medicine and Public Health, we deliver clinical, population and lab based research, integrated teaching programs and high quality clinical services.
Our footprint reaches out from our world class teaching hospital at the Flinders Medical Centre in South Australia to multiple rural clinical locations all the way to Darwin in the Northern Territory. We promote research in health services, systems improvements, public and population health, improved clinical care and laboratory and precision medicine. This approach has seen us investigate everything from community health problems to the smallest of molecules that influence human disease.
Our research and teaching equips the next generation of leaders and innovators with the skill, commitment and vision to protect vulnerable communities and truly advance health outcomes. It’s at the heart of everything we do. It’s about improving the health and wellbeing for everyone in society.

Joining a Flinders University Student Association (FUSA) club is a great way to involve yourself in the University community and meet like-minded individuals who share the same hobby or passion. Not only does it provide a great break from study, joining a club expands your opportunities outside of the classroom and allows you to network with others in the same field of study. Below is a snapshot of the clubs that relate to the College of Medicine and Public Health.
For a full list of clubs and associations, visit the FUSA website.
Rural health opportunities are available throughout the Doctor of Medicine program. To ensure all students have the opportunity to access the unique learning available in a rural setting, medical students undertake a rural placement throughout the course.
The MD Rural Stream provides students with an opportunity to work, learn and be part of a rural community for the third year of their course. Students experience the ability to develop and grow in skills through interesting clinical medicine in a supported learning environment.
