PhD immigration with not related Bachelor degree

Hi all,
I am now 23, I am a visiting student in Adelaide, South Australia. I will come back to Vietnam next year to finish my Medical Degree (MD) and will come back to Australia to do a PhD degree in Information Technology (full-time payment), my research career is about Bioinformatics (a combination of medicine, biology and IT). By the time I get PhD degree, I will be 28-29 years old.
As I search information, to get a PR in Australia, the Bachelor units/degree should be related to the occupation. What should I do in my case? Can this
be somehow considered a special case? There is an RPL case but it would take me 6 years, I will be then 34 years old and lose 5 points in age and will PhD be considered for 20 points anymore, are 3-4 years of PhD program will be counted as working also as I get full-time salary for it?
Thank you very much!
