Our five-year, direct-entry medical degree is designed for school-leavers and is the only undergraduate entry program in Western Australia. This means you don’t need a three-year bachelor degree to enter the course.
Our Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, MBBS(Curtin), course has a strong emphasis on primary care to position graduates well for rural and remote practice, and outer suburban locations, where there is a shortage of doctors.
