Overview

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.
