The four academic Schools are Curtin Medical School, Curtin School of Allied Health, Curtin School of Nursing and Curtin School of Population Health. Together, the four schools educate more health professionals than any other Western Australian tertiary institution.

The schools operate specialist clinics that provide Curtin students with the opportunity to experience real-world professional services before they graduate.

Each of our schools hosts dedicated research groups, many of which are supported by national research funding.
