Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) Program
NEWS: In 2016 Bond has cancelled UMAT as part of their selection criteria into medicine. However, as of 2018 (current season), Bond University has introduced their own Psychometric Test as part of their selection criteria into their medical degree. Based on student's academic achievement, about 50% of applicants will be offered an opportunity to complete a compulsory online test. There is a fee for this Psychometric Test which will have to be paid by the student. The MMI interview offers for Bond University will be based on the results of this Psychometric Test. The test aims to select students with character traits important for a successful career as a Doctor, for example, resilience, logical reasoning and empathy. Moreover, the test is designed to “rule out” personality traits such as narcissism, which have been recognised as a common cause of rogue (dishonest and unprincipled) medical practitioners.
We encourage applicants to prepare for the medical interview.
Applicants are also encouraged to have discussions with dentists, dental specialists, dental academics; observing a dental practitioner in a variety of practice settings; hands-on experience e.g. dental assistant work.
