The Bachelor of Medical Science (Pathway to Medicine) offered at Rockhampton and Bundaberg campuses will provide students an entry pathway to the  regionally delivered UQ Doctor of Medicine (MD) program as part of the Regional Medical Pathway.

The Pathway to Medicine course has overlap with the existing courses: CG93 Bachelor of Medical Science (Clinical Measurement specialisation) and CL10 Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (Honours).  As such, it is expected that there will be a significant increased interest in the existing CG93 and CL10 courses.

Students who complete either the CG93 or CL10 course can apply for graduate entry into the UQ MD program, or any other postgraduate medicine course across Australia, after completion of the required entry exam. 

A similar increased interest is also expected to extend to a range of other health professional courses offered by CQUniversity, with students' long term intent of applying for entry into postgraduate medicine.

The Bachelor of Medical Science (Pathway to Medicine) has 23 compulsory units.

There are sixteen units of study in the first two years of the undergraduate degree course. The final year of study has seven units of study, one of these units is a double credit unit.
