Australian Medical Council Accreditation Visit
The Stage Two Australian Medical Council (AMC) accreditation process for the new Curtin Medical School culminated in a visit from the Assessment Team from Monday 22 February to Friday 26 February 2016.
Thirty four meetings were arranged on campus, via teleconference and at the Fiona Stanley Hospital and St John of God Midland Hospital. The Assessment Team spoke with more than 130 people in five days to assess the readiness of Curtin’s systems and processes, including those planned for the future growth of the Medical School. The strong support expressed by our partners, especially clinical, was acknowledged by the panel.
We at the Curtin Medical School would like to extend our thanks to those Curtin staff involved in the accreditation process for contributing your time, expertise and enthusiasm.
A preliminary statement of findings has been received, which will be followed by a formal report that will be delivered later in March. The final sign off, and issuing of a press-release by the AMC, may not occur until close to the end of 2016.
Student enrolment is planned for February 2017, but the medical school remains subject to accreditation by the AMC and the Medical Board.
