Curtin University Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery Overview

This course can lead to many careers in the medical profession. Your studies will focus on biomedical sciences and clinical sciences, as well as healthcare in settings such as primary care, hospitals and aged care. You will also study Indigenous health, population health and professional development concepts.

In your first year, you’ll complete discipline-based subjects in medicine and begin developing skills in clinical communication. You will also develop skills in interprofessional practice by learning alongside other health sciences students.

Your second and third years will be devoted to a more intensive study of medical knowledge that focuses on the structure and function of the human body in health and disease.

In your fourth year, you’ll transition from the Curtin campus into a clinical setting, and work with people from all age groups under clinical supervision in hospital and community settings, including in rural and remote locations.

Your final year will be in clinical settings where you will work as a member of a healthcare team in preparation for your internship once you graduate.

Why Study Medicine at Curtin?

  • Curtin’s five-year, direct-entry medical degree is the only undergraduate entry program in Western Australia. This means you don’t need a three-year bachelor degree to enter the course.
  • Its strong emphasis on primary care will position you well for rural and remote practice, as well as outer suburban locations, where there is an acute shortage of doctors.
  • Curtin was the top Australian university for undergraduate outcomes of skills development, learner engagement and teaching quality in the field of medicine, in The Good Universities Guide (2022).
