Midland Health Campus on track
Curtin will soon have a very visible presence in Midland, with the construction of the University’s new campus set to begin in 2017.
On 21 November 2016, the University signed a certificate to secure the arrangements between key stakeholders involved in the development of the Curtin Midland Campus.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry joined the Premier of Western Australia the Hon Colin Barnett, the Minister for Planning; Disability Service the Hon Donna Faragher, and the Minister for Health; Culture and the Arts the Hon John Day, for the onsite signing.
The Midland Campus will be a clinical base for Curtin Medical School students in their fourth and fifth year of study, and will also be utilised by allied health schools including nursing, physiotherapy and pharmacy.
Professor Terry said the new campus would provide students, community and industry partners with a much-needed new educational facility in Midland.
“The vibrant new campus will be an important base from which Curtin can provide greater access to higher education in the Midland region,” Professor Terry said.
“It is also anticipated that the facilities will be used by local partners such as the new Midland St John of God Public Hospital and that other local health or education partnership opportunities arise.”
Building is expected to commence in 2017, with the campus operational in 2019.
