Bond Psychometric Test - For those students who applied for Bond Medicine, based on academic achievement, about 50% of applicants will be offered an opportunity to complete a compulsory Bond University Psychometric online test. The test will be in the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) format and will require the candidate to complete two assessments with a total of 311 questions. Students should allow a maximum on one and a half hours to complete the test. Both assessments are untimed but should take approximately 40 minutes and 30 minutes respectively.

This Psychometric test is an emotional intelligence test which has been designed to choose applicants 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 has been recognised as a common cause of rogue (dishonest and unprincipled) medical practitioners.  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.

From the 5th of February 2021, psychometric testing invitations will be sent out by email progressively to selected applicants from 2:00 pm onwards.

BOND medical program is comprised of two sequential degrees

  • Doctor of Medicine (MD)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Medical Program is designed to equip graduates with the foundational knowledge, skills and attributes required to safely and effectively practice medicine in today’s complex healthcare environment. The first of Bonds 2-part Medical Program (the Bachelor of Medical Studies), is distinguished by its strong educational focus on problem-based learning, interactive workshops and clinical simulation. With small class sizes, students learn in a highly personalised environment with state-of-the-art equipment.

The second of Bonds 2-part Medical Program (the Doctor of Medicine) must be completed for students to be eligible for registration as a medical practitioner in any state or territory in Australia or New Zealand. The MD is distinguished by its strong focus on evidence-based medicine and integrated clinical practice. Due to Bonds tri-semester structure, graduating students will have the advantage of entering the workforce as a Doctor in only 14 semesters. With Bond University’s three semesters-per-year timetable and intensive clinical training periods, these two programs are completed in just 4 years and 8 months, with graduates then eligible to apply for hospital internships.
