Curtin Medical School
Recent important changes have been made to the 2017 Admissions Guide, including the course switchers definition (page 4) and the remoteness category for rural applicants (page 9). Please see our application requirements page for the most up-to-date guide.
The Curtin Medical School offers school leavers a five-year, direct-entry medicine degree.
Commencing in 2017, the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery will be the only undergraduate entry program in Western Australia.
It will have a strong emphasis on primary care, which will position graduates well for rural and remote practice, as well as outer suburban locations, where there is an acute shortage of doctors.
The school is part of the Faculty of Health Sciences and was approved by the Australian Government in 2015.
