Change to Graduate-only entry into the MBChB programme
From: Ellen Veronica
Dear University of Auckland,
Currently, students wishing to enter the MBChB programme can enter through the first-year pathway (first-year BSc Biomedical Science / BHSc), or as graduates with a qualifying degree (https://www.auckland.ac.nz/en/study/stud...). Given that increasing numbers of graduate students have been accepted into the MBChB programme relative to first-year students in recent years, there is speculation that the University is transitioning to graduate-only entrance.
In relation to this, please provide the following:
1. Any review(s) which consider the role of first-year entry into the MBChB programme, or a transition to graduate-only entry
2. Written minutes of any Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences meetings (including meetings of the Medical Programme Directorate, Board of Studies (Medicine), or any Working Party established for the purposes of reviewing the entry process into the MBChB programme) regarding the role of first-year entry into the MBChB programme, or a transition to graduate-only entry
Information prior to 2019 is not necessary to provide.
